Turtle Shell Pouch

Turtle Shell pouch is 8” in length plus added fringe making it 16” overall. Adornments are, hand made by me peyote stitch beads, antique trade era beads, old Chinese coins, bone and horn hair tube, brass hand, stone disk, wood button and the closure on the belly side, shown on the back detail is a very cool elk rosette. Brain tanned deerskin used through out.  This piece has been floating around in the pondering what to do with that beautiful shell space for years now.  Being noted but set back on the shelf numerous times because my contemporary work and painting  has grabbed the front row of my attention. Well in all its sweetness, she has become herself.
