Little Shiny Wolf is the designer's name translated into English from Nisga'a. She is from the Nisga'a Nation on her mother's side, and African American mixed on her father's. She started dabbling in beading in 2017 in Toronto. She had always appreciated Indigenous beaded jewelry and Regalia, but gained an even greater appreciation for all the passion, love, time, and labour that goes into creating various pieces the more involved she became in the Indigenous community in Toronto. She continues her journey as a beading artist to present day, creating in Calgary now.
