Beyuka (1935- )
Beyuka, who has been making jewelry since 1954, learned the craft
from her brother-in-law. Starting in 1956, she worked with her husband
Edward Beyuka for a number of years. Madeline did the inlay and Eddie
did the silverwork on their collaborative pieces. After they divorced,
she continued to use the same designs, but she began doing all of
the stonework and silverwork herself. Madeline has nine children,
some of whom are jewelers. She signs her work MB.
