"By the mid-18th century, many forms of beadwork were made and designs were developed by the Seneca, Cayuga and Tuscarora bead artisans. Velvet material and crystal beads were favored for pincushions and picture frames. From the late 1800's to the early 1920's, Mohawk beaders continued creating elaborate pieces featuring the raised beadwork technique.”
