Northern Plains Style Beaded Blanket Strip
This strip is beaded on hand smoked, brain tanned deer hide with glass Czech beads and Old Italian glass beads. It measures 48.5” L x 3” W. The thongs are roughly 4 – 5” in length, also smoked brain tanned hide. Two pieces were sewn together to make this one long piece. Please refer to photos for beading and stitching. This strip is hand sewn, and a loom was not used. Patterned after an 1860’s Crow Absaalooke museum piece.
