Neon Birch Works is owned by Anishinaabekwe designer Tammy Beers; a member of Rama First Nation and a proud member of the Indigenous Arts Collective of Canada. She lives and works in Tkaronto (Toronto).
Tammy first learned how to make fringe earrings as a teenager, from an Ojibwe woman. Nearly ten years later, she was taught how to use a bead loom from her Anishinaabe friend and classmate at First Nations House, at the University of Toronto. During her university years, she made her own jewellery and gifts for friends and family.
Her growing brand includes a great deal of beaded loom work. She draws inspiration primarily from Anishinaabe culture, nature, city life, fashion, and art deco design. Her brand can be described as chic and sometimes quirky, as Tammy follows wherever her creativity leads.
All loomed beadwork is double stitched for durability.
