Yonavea Hawkins is an Native American bead work artist who creates unique bead work designs using a beading loom with size 13 cut beads. She also creates Native American cultural items such as moccasins using a 2-needle applique stitch for the bead work.  Her favorite bead size are size 13's because there are more color choices than in the smaller size beads.
