Whimsy Beaded Star Panel


Beaded Whimsy Panel with Bird Design

This Whimsy Beaded Star Panel will make a nice addition to your collection.  The crafter made this beaded panel on tan and brown fabric.  Then he or she created the multi colored bird design with Seed Beads in White, Transparent Amber, Transparent Dark Blue, Greasy Yellow, Mustard, Cheyenne Pink, Green, Transparent Green, Clear and Transparent Red.  You also see three larger cut Amber beads.  The crafter added edge beading in White around the arms of the star.  A piece of green ribbon surrounds the design.   On the back, you will find white pellon fabric that is not original to the piece.  At the top, a piece of the pellon extends to create a tab for hanging.

The Whimsy Beaded Star Panel is a classic example of the Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs made by Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States.  Native American beaded whimsies refer to small decorative items or trinkets that  Native American artisans hand craft using intricate beadwork techniques. These ‘whimsical’ creations often come in practical shapes and styles like pincushions, match holders, picture frames, needle cases, bags and small decorative cushions.

This item measures approximately 6.5 inches across at the widest points.  You will see bead loss mostly around the edges.  The nap of the fabric has deteriorated and there are some tears in the fabric. The green ribbon has also worn away and come off in places.  The panel may have originally been the front part of a pillow that someone removed. One of a Kind!
