Featuring beautiful geometric designs on a light blue background, this knife sheath was made by the young Miss Ravenshead; she is the 15 year old daughter of quillwork artist Chris Ravenshead.

Description

The beaded design on the front of the sheath features wonderful geometric designs in hues of dark blue, red, green, and light yellow on a light blue background. The outer edge is finished with an alternating pattern of dark blue and light yellow beads and yellow dyed horse hair and tin cone dangles.

The bottom of the sheath is completed with a 10 inch blue and yellow beaded dangle, leather ties, and matching horse hair and tin cone dangles.

The beadwork is done using the lane/lazy stitch technique; the beads are sewn with real sinew. The sheath is also sewn with real sinew; it has a rawhide core and a brain tanned leather covering.

The back of the sheath is unadorned and includes an adjustable leather tie.

The knife measures 11 1/2 inches long and 1 inch wide; it has a wooden handle and a steel blade.
