A variety of reds,sparked with yellow, black and white, create a vivid, symmetrical design. The tiny beads are sewn onto deerskin, which is then attached to a functional, sturdy barrette clip.
The warm colors and central diamond shapes are reminiscent of Navajo rugs, and the design includes symbols of the four corners of the earth (the little crosses), as well as stepped rain symbols. The center shapes are flanked by beautifully delineated eagle feathers – symbols of prayers, and hopes fulfilled.
Traditional look, colors, and message, in a beautiful piece of unusual, very wearable and useful, casual jewelry.
