Purple Mariposa Lily Beaded Medicine Bag with Brass Cones
Inspired by Mountain Man Rendezvous of the pre-1840 Fur Trade Era, this medicine bag was made with glass seed beads on brain-tanned, deer hide leather. The necklace is made with glass tile beads, bone hairpipe, and brass fluted beads. The colors are a blend of modern and vintage seed beads with a purple Mariposa Lily floral design and brass cones on the end of the fringe. This unique item is completely hand sewn by Oregon Native artist 'Stands Her Ground'. Approximate dimensions: 28" length necklace, 2.75" x 3" bag, and 3.5" fringe.
These medicine bags are common attire at the Mountain Man Pacific Primitive Rendezvous, however, they can also be worn as a trendy Boho Western necklace.
