It starts with Love...
A dedication to a life long Love for Beads, and the beauty they add to making our world BEADIFUL.

Rhoda applies her expertise to developing First Nation art-based curriculum, workshops and programs and to coordinating the Arts in Education -Yukon program; a program that hires artists to create art-based resources that teachers use to deliver core curricular requirements.
