This is such a special and beautiful piece in so many ways-- a child's Indian beadwork belt stitched onto soft buckskin. The piece was hand made with obvious love- fine seed beads are sewn with water or wave patterning in turquoise, warm golden orange hearts and red flying birds with a background of ivory-- the symbols speak of the sweet spirit of the piece.

The bead work appears to be all intact. The buckskin is in good condition-- the ties have become weak and could be replaced. Despite the great overall condition, I would not advise wearing the belt as the beadwork is old and the threads are likely delicate. If you wanted to use to the belt you would want to have the bead work reinforced with new threads.

This fabulous piece would be ideal for display--

The belt measures 20.25" l x 1.5" w
