Beadwork Strip, n.d.
35 1/8 x 1 5/8 in. (89.22 x 4.13 cm)
glass beads without backing
Native American woven beadwork incorporates earlier quillwork and fiber-weaving techniques, adapted for European trade goods. The commonly used term, "loom" beadwork actually refers to a number of techniques that differ among tribal groups, only some of which make use of looms. Visually rich beadwork strips featured ornate designs and complex geometric forms, integrating traditional motifs with the new materials.
