Jennine Krauchi, Artist

I have always tried to tell a story through my beadwork, whether it’s a personal story or a broader theme. For this coin, I tried to tell a little of the history of the Red River Métis, our struggles and hardships and what we have overcome as a people. I never thought that my journey of Métis beadwork would result in having my design chosen to be featured on a coin. I am so very proud, humbled and honoured. I created this image in celebration of all my Métis ancestors and all of the beaders who came before me, right back to those who picked up the first bead and produced this beautiful artform.

I feel so proud and honoured to have worked on this coin, and it’s such a unique piece because of all the individual bead components that form the design. In terms of the engraving, the biggest challenge was achieving the right contrast: I used multiple frostings and varying relief height to change the way the light reacts with the different design elements, and that’s what delivers the ‘wow’ factor.

Jennine is one of those gifted knowledge keepers who passes on her stories through her beading to future generations about the roots of the Métis, Jennine's amazing depiction of Métis history, culture, and way of life emerge quickly in this design. It outlines the struggles, language, clothing, food, traditions and more. It is easy to see that Jennine has poured her heart, her soul, and love into this work. This is a masterpiece that captures so much within a limited space. I have seen nothing like it.
