I’ve been wanting to get back to making one of my favorite jewelry lines. I’d been toying with new ideas for the line, so I finally pulled out my buckskin, bone, and beads and got down to work.
I’ve been wanting to try rolling my own fringe. I am pleased with the results.
A collection of stones and crystals I’ve been wanting to work with.
Old trade beads and turquoise.
Small hairpipe beads… the source of my inspiration this day.
I worked up a design based on traditional bone hairpipe chokers and breastplates worn by many northern tribes.
Working the design into a tobacco colored pouch with rolled fringe.
With the addition of a horsehair tassel and some beads, the piece is finished.
There are several more coming. Keep and eye on my Etsy shop!
