Bison Bag

Posted in Artwork, Beadwork with tags , , , , on August 19, 2013 by starhandarts

A new “Traditional” bag just finished. I love this combination of materials. Skin, fur, wool and beads. Something about the medium brings up memories and pictures of another life and time. ¬†Bison hide, brain tan deer skin, wool, glass seed beads, brass gew gaws, antique trade beads, bone beads, antique coins and bells. Bag size is 15” long with fringe x 11” wide with the center rosette 3.5” diameter. Mix them all together and beauty just seems to happen.¬†IMG_1115
