Bottom photo: Melinda Carriker notes, "This is a piece I had children and adults help me make at our museum to teach about beads and designs. This is done with the loom-free beading technique, artificial sinew, and French glass beads size 4 mm. The design is based on a pair of Ioway garters at the Milwaukee Public Museum."
