Description
The small drawstring bag is entirely covered in small glass beads. There is no distinguishing feature to determine the front from the back of the bag, therefore, the design of each side features a combination of irregular geometric shapes and randomly placed black beads. The black beads either feature individually or in combinations so as to make up curved lines and decorative motifs on the background of tan, yellow, orange and cream colours.
