Funny thing is that this year 985 coldfishes apathetically glanced at this namerican beauty «Hairbow Ornament», and none of them did deign to vote, share, bookmark, make a pin or submit any comment/feedback. Way to go!'
Reproduction Upper Missouri or Transmontane (Northern Plains & Plateau) style hairbows handcrafted by a prominent American artist and quillworker John Kursch (Earth Lodge) in 2008 and further improved by me (I made a new beading and feather ornament on the pins, and replaced an original hairpipe drop with a three-rows dentalium one). Not for sale (unless I would be absolutely compelled by your irresistible offer).

The ornament consists of two main parts: a wooden tapered pin of osage orange and a pendant itself, which in turn is also divided into two portions: a bow-tie and a long drop. Bow-tie portion is made of red dyed buffalo parflesh, to which in several rows smooth dentalia and a copper tube are attached. On the drop portion, dentalia, braintan hide, real sines and ermine tails are used. A little braid is slipped down through the brass tube, and then the tube should be slided all the way up the braid and the pin sticked down in the top.
