Physical description

Rectangular band of woven beads in a geometric pattern: a central motif of two green chevrons extending from the edges with points meeting in the centre is repeated one and a half times. The chevrons are flanked by a yellow pattern proceeding from the centre to an alternating edge. White field; black edging. Nine strands (one black, eight orange) extend from the joined ends, with shell endings and large wooden black beads. The shells appear to be from crab legs.
