Leech Lake artist Delina White expands fashion design business
December 7, 2020
LEECH LAKE -- Delina White's dive into fashion began at age six in a two-room shack without electricity, under the watchful eye of her grandmother.
A master beadwork artist, her grandmother taught her everything she knows about beading.
Growing up, White quickly discovered a passion for the traditional woodland style of beading but soon realized it is nearly impossible to make a profit equivalent to the amount of work required. She recalled her grandmother selling her beaded work for just a couple of dollars, severely undervaluing it.
