Ooak Horse Medicine Bag
Jewelry - Horsehide, Fur,clay
NOT FOR SALE AT THIS TIME
This bag is on the road going to Indian Marts and Bead Shows.
If you would like something similar I would be glad to make one for you in the size and color of your choice.
Approx. 2.75 x 2.25
Flap is covered in hair-on horse-hide with dorsel strip.
Flap closure is a handmade turquoise pottery bead.Bag is filled with dry white sage for smudging. A selection of healing stones is also included if you wish to use them.
All materials are legally obtained from trappers, traders and dealers of the leather and fur trades. Horsehide is from Canada. Horses are not an endangered species.
By using horsehide here, the horse is being honored in a traditional way.
Many horses die or are euthanized every year. There is no reason that the materials they
leave behind should not be used by man. I choose to use these materials in traditional
crafts that honor the animal that has provided them.
