Native American Leather & Bead CraftingBook - 2008
Native American art has a timeless appeal that fascinates anyone who appreciates quality craft and design. The projects selected here are modern interpretations of traditional Native American patterns and techniques--they adopt methods, supplies, and tools that are accessible to any crafter, while encouraging an appreciation for the historical significance of this unique culture. Leather working principles are demonstrated step-by-step and used to make moccasins, pouches, and vests, and patterns are also included for more complex garments such as a Southwest Rosette Shirt and a Chippewa Inspired Beaded Jacket. Many jewelry items are also featured--from a Turtle Fetish Necklace to a Zig-Zag Ankle Bracelet. While the inspiration for these designs may be centuries old, they still remain hugely fashionable!
