Salihah Moore is an artist and designer of hand beaded jewelry and wall hangings.
Gathering inspiration from textiles and contemporary design, Salihah strives to make new the ancient craft of weaving seed beads together. Although she'll have moments of vision in color palette or pattern, most of her creations form naturally from the making process and are not premeditated.
Originally from California, Salihah developed a deep love affair with the ocean, sand, flora and fauna of the Pacific coast. Working with the seed beads reminds her of sifting through sand grains as a child and being in awe of the hues and variations.
When not hunched over her bead mat, Salihah enjoys knitting, sewing, being with her three year old, and painting with watercolor and guache. A music and art collaboration with her husband is in progress called Sun Ships.
All weavings are hand sewn with needle, thread, Czech and Japanese glass seed beads.
Every piece is hand-made from her home studio in Boulder, Colorado including the gold fill ear wires.
