Turtle Shell medicine bag / pouch

Remember that not all colors appear the same on all monitors

This is a Mississippi River Map Turtle Shell

This shell measures approx. 3" x 4"

The bag inside is made with black deer skin
It has thong neck straps that tie and about 44" long
There is 4 1/2" - 10" of double fringe

It is decorated with glass beads in amethyst/purple, peridot green, silver lined clear, silver beads and tin cones
I really like this combination of colors

Green is a healing color and it represents harmony and balance, Green symbolizes hope, renewal and peace, and is usually liked by the gentle and sincere.

If you like purple, you tend to be unconventional, tolerant and dignified, likely to achieve positions of authority. It represents royalty.
Purple energy is a great protector, it is reliable and solid.

I cut, drill and sand my own shells and cut, lace and design my own bags

This would be perfect for your next rendezvous or pow wow

******All the shells I use are in their natural state, meaning they are not sealed with varnish or shellac
These shells are legal and non-endangered

My bags are all hand made by me and are not native american made

Not all bags are made the same. The bags are made to fit each shell...there is no pattern used.
This bag also has more time put into it


Those with the turtle as their animal totem can relate to the "sure and steady" message this creature brings to our lives.

It is also a powerful totem for protection as withdrawing into it's shell is an amazing self-defense mechanism.

The turtle has few predators, which gives it an innocent energy. This also increases its lifespan, and so holds the symbolic meaning for longevity in many cultures.
