Ute Indians

About The Full Beaded Melon Slice Clutch with Wrap Around Geometric Design

The foundation materials for this clutch consist of two layers of brain tanned and smoked deer or elk hide assembled using a heavy gauge corded thread.  This same material was used to secure the beadwork to the exterior layer of hide and to attach the fabric-based brass zipper.  Ornamentation consists of glass seed beads in six hues and three sizes.  

Against a full on background of intense orange-red beads is a display of nesting chevrons fanning outward from a base of chicory blue to edges and tips defined by a step gradient band beginning with black against the blue, then terra cotta into dark amber finishing with a clear crystaline row.  A downward pointing step triangle floats above the center of the primary design and is echoed by a border of downward inward pointing step triangles along the curved edge.  Tehse all have black center bases grading to terra cotta, dark amber and finish with a clear crystal.
