Beaded Moosehide Heart Pin

$ 25.00

Handmade by Acho Dene First Nations Artists from Fort Liard, Northwest Territories, Canada. Moosehide items are produced by the Dene people using skills handed down for generations.

Decorative beadwork has been a part of the Dene heritage since the first glass beads were brought in for trade in the late 1700's. A row of beads is threaded on one strand, which is sewn tightly to the backing with a second needle. Each item represents hours of hand work.

Size 1.75" x 1.75"

Because these are handmade, variations in design and color are to be expected, and part of the unique beauty of each piece.
