Native American Beaded Bracelet with Deerskin
This bracelet, an original creation by Native American artist Pauline Kothman, continues a long tradition and combines a variety of elements from natural sources which symbolize the earth and the past eras experienced by California Native Americans.
The assortment of glass pony beads hearkens to the days when beads first came to their culture by way of trade and subsequently became a source of intricate and expressive designs. In these creations, the beads are combined with deerskin ties to make a meaningful and attractive accessory.
Bracelet is 12" in length.
