This medicine bag is made from a piece of the most luscious winter beaver fur. The fur is so soft and thick. It is backed with a pace of soft deerskin, and hand stitched together with beadwork done in multi-colored seed beads. Adorning the front is a gorgeous stone of Indonesian Agate with swirls of greys, greens, blues and beiges that compliment the shades within the beaver fur perfectly.
The stone measures approximately 1 1/2 inches by 2 inches. It is a substantial stone. The bag measures approximately 3 inches by 5 inches. It hangs from a long piece of leather that will allow you to adjust it to your desired length. This bag is perfect for holding your sacred medicines, be they herbs, crystals, stones or something else,

PLEASE NOTE: I only use scap furs to make my bags. If I had my way, none of these beautiful animals would be trapped and killed for the fur trade. But since they are, I figure I can do my best to honor the animals by taking the scraps from furriers and making these medicine bags to honor their lives and spirits.
