Cream Rug Pattern BarretteSharon Garcia
A striking way to keep your hair tamed, with traditional Navajo beadwork.
Navajo beadwork?? Yes, that has a long tradition, probably stemming from the old trade fairs with Plains tribes.
Here, the background of creamy white beads is dramatically animated by a central escutcheon of navy blue, red, orange and yellow beads, outlined with tiny, sparkling, gold-tone beads.
The design is similar to a Navajo rug pattern; the corners are cut off with a line-up of the same color beads as in the center.
The beads are hand sewn onto white deerskin, which is sewn, in turn, onto a commercial barrette base.
A colorful, handsome way to keep hair out of your face, this barrette will beautify every day.
