This lost wax cast sterling silver medicine pouch has been hand-enameled. The front (shown on left) depicts a "Tree-Frog" on a leaf. It has been designed in such a way that it is large enough to hold special Sacred objects and Prayers. The back of the piece (pictured on the right) has been created with both sterling silver on the top (the hinge flap with snap latch) the bottom of the back of the piece has been created with cow "rawhide," (recycled from my drum leather), which has been stitched into the silver and has been hand illustrated to resemble a leaf pattern.
The pouch has been further enhanced with "lost wax" cast and hand-enameled Eagle Feathers. In addition, there are many rare and antique beads, including Turquoise, jade, Wood, Glass, Seeds, and Snakebone, as well as Rainforest Jasper Deer and Pig Suede and Gold-lip Mother of Pearl Heshi and has been finished with sterling silver cones and clasp.
One could say that Frog Medicine and Water Energy are interchangeable. All water rights belong to Frog, including all initiations by water. Water and emotion are also interchangeable. The ability of Frog Medicine is to give emotional support and energy where it is needed, and help "clear" the influences that are not needed through transformation of purifying waters of higher thoughts and energies.
Measurements: 3" (at its widest area) x 2 ¾" long and 5/8" thick. Length with fringe, 6." Necklace length, 24."
