This necklace is a traditional bone choker worn by many of the plains Native Americans and some of the woodland peoples. It is made in the Osage/Cherokee tradition using bone hair pipes, Czech glass pony beads and deer hide leather. This is a more feminine version of that traditional apparel. There are 12 white bone pipes spaced with turquoise colored pony beads and matching bone spacers in between strung on naturally tanned sinew. The center is highlighted by a turquoise colored dyed Howlite stone donut fastened to the necklace with natural colored waxed linen. There is a sliver toned butterfly charm attached to that. The necklace ends are all leather as well as the ties. The ties are 5 1/8 inches long. The entire necklace is 23 inches long and the donut is 1 1/2 inches in diameter. This can be a dress western piece or worn casually with jeans.
