Djuana Tucker has been creating porcupine quill embroidery pieces since 2005. She works in the style of the Great Lakes native tribes. Everything about her work is meticulously done by hand—she dyes the quills and deer hair using natural materials, forms and ages the copper and tin cones, and occasionally even makes her own leather. Her design ideas come from early to mid eighteenth century museum pieces as well as from the world around her. She makes items for re-enactors and collectors alike: bags and pouches, horn straps, leg ties, and knife sheaths.
