Miller’s tufted and beaded cuffs are slow fashion in the best sense. Miller begins the process by designing the beadwork, then tufting, and finally finishing each cuff with a beaded edge and drawstring antler button. Each cuff is one-of-a-kind and, Miller hopes, will be passed down
as a family heirloom.

This new category honours the memory of Amy Willier — co-owner of Moonstone Creation, Indigenous Knowledge Keeper and artist — who passed away earlier this year. We are honoured to continue Willier’s legacy of promoting Indigenous makers with this award.
