Vendor Biography

Beverley King is of Mi’kmaq and European descent and is a member of Qalipu First Nation. She has a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts and a Masters degree specializing in Art Therapy. She 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 or healing when, after the passing of both 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 ornament.
