Little neck pouches were often used to carry very precious items like a beloved memento from an important event, or a rare herb that is useful. This small beaded pouch is an awesome depiction of bags used by Native Americans.
Native American artist Laura Vermundson, enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, crates this pouch with commercially tanned deer leather. She cuts the pouch with a flap closure that features a metal conch. She decorates the front the the bag with glass beads.
The actual bag measures 4 1/4 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches tall. Laura finishes the decoration of the bag with leather thongs that have glass and metal beads, and tin cones with dyed blue horse hair dangles.
The piece is signed by the artist.
