Native American leather & bead crafting

Patty Cox
"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."--Publisher description
