Amulet bag.

This is a piece from my mom's collection. My cousin Amy beaded this piece from a pattern. Sorry, I don't know who the artist is behind the design. I can probably find out if you would like to know (Mom, if you know, please leave a comment.).

The piece is done in peyote stitch. The two panels were sewn together to create an amulet bag. As you can see, Amy also did a fair amount of work on the strap.

Each panel is about the size of the My Sweet Rose piece I showed you earlier.

It's a large piece and a lot of work went into it. It's very lovely and I was sad to give it back to my mom when I was finished taking pictures of it.

Don't you think she should let me keep it?

Wow, that is amazing. I can't imagine the time that went into it. I don't think I would have the patience. *sigh*

I agree - a lot of work and lot of time. The result is beautiful - bear looks so real!

Wow. I had to look twice and then I saw a bear!

BTW, I hope the buttons arrived safely. I was a bit worried since I didn't have time to find a box in all the craziness over here.
