Size Guide
Check out this incredible artifact!

The piece is constructed of thick Indian tanned Great American Buffalo Bison hide with sinew sewn early glass trade seed beads in a traditional geometric linear pattern and iconic Cheyenne tabs. The beads include colors of greasy yellow, greasy Cheyenne pink white hearts, cobalt, greasy white, medium green, blue, and semi-transparent red. The piece shows many rolled tin jingle dangle cones tied to Indian hide with red and yellow dyed horse tail hair fringes. The bag dates to the Indian Reservation Period, which can loosely be dated to circa 1890-1950s. The bag has a supple soft hide and little-to-no bead loss and includes the original Indian hide top strap and fringes. The piece is stuffed with stripped whicker and the bag displays very well.

In the absence of a specific assertion or certification to the contrary, Double D Ranch does not warrant, represent, or suggest that any particular item or product which is sold or offered for sale by Double D Ranch in any forum or venue of sale is created or produced by any Indian or Indian Tribe, is an Indian product, or was created by any Indian arts and crafts organization as such terms are defined by the laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction, including without limitation, the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and rules set forth by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board.

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
