Spirit of the Diaspora – Haitian Beads and Sequin Art

In times of distress I am always reminded of the spirit of hope and encouragement extended by the artisans. Like the musicians of New Orleans, the artisans of Haiti will become the glue that will hold together and advance the culture.

No other art form is more representative than the beaded and sequined art. The Museum of the African Diaspora is currently conducting workshops in the making of these incredible examples of the Haitian heritage.  These unique pieces make stunning focal points for both the casual or serious collector.  Visit www.indigogarts.com and www.zanmilakayblog.org for more information.
