Beverley King has a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts and a Masters degree specializing in Art Therapy. She has been creating sealskin products under the name of “BWSealStyle” since 2016. She started working with sealskin through experiences with the St. John’s Mi’kmaq Women’s Circle, of which she is a founding member. It soon became a passion and a form of medicine and healing when, after the passing of her parents, she needed a way to move on from the caregiving role. The sensory experience of working with the seal fur is relaxing and satisfying. She combines natural materials such as pelt, fur and antler with man made materials to create various pieces of jewelry, brooches and ornaments.
