Wolf Willow: Rosaries And Medicine

Prepare wild-harvested wolf willow berries and use them to make jewellery, medicine, and Métis silverberry fudge. Learn about the many food and medicinal benefits of this beautiful prairie plant.

Silverberries or wolf-willow berries are traditionally gathered to make beautiful natural rosaries by the Métis people.

These mealy, sparkly berries can be used to bead clothing or make jewellery and regalia. We can even make a traditional dessert from the silverberry bush – a delicious & unique confection known as ‘Métis ice cream’.

Learn to clean and pierce the beads from a Métis herbalist and make your own rosary, prayer beads, or necklace to wear with pride.
