Beaded Boot Cushion

Beaded Boot Cushion

During Victorian times, cushions of all shapes and sizes such as these were sold to woman to hold  their hat pins. These continue to be made today by skilled beadworkers. Shelia Escobar, Mohawk, is well known for her skill at using the raised beading  technique when making cushions, barrettes, purses, collars, cuffs and caps. Sheila also makes action cornhusk dolls, dressed in traditional outfits.  She travels extensively selling and demonstrating her work at museums, festivals and special events. This boot cushion is edged with silk green ribbon and features a glass bead floral design on a black velvet background. Hanging length 8"
