My First Sale

Beaded Purse

Beaded Purse

I was teaching in a little Yupiik Eskimo village and it was Christmas Break.


This was a village of about 300 people on the tundra of far western AK so there's not much to do over breaks. People saw me making this and someone asked me if I would sell it. I was so happy but it did teach me that you have to pick your project.

This took me two weeks to make and I sold it for 75 dollars. So not much by the hour but after that lots of people asked to buy from me and some came back a second time which made me really happy

This is not an original pattern. It came from Susan Cooper but I changed it after I saw it so I'm still not sure how all that works.
