This is the cutest vintage folk art bracelet! I have never seen anything quite like this. It looks as if it may be a souvenir. It is made out of hand painted seeds or nuts, shells, and tiny seed beads on brass wire. The bracelet itself is made of painted white, red, blue and yellow nuts. Hanging from the bracelet are people charms. The boys have a large painted seed body and a black eyed pea face. The arms and legs are tiny black and clear, glass seed beads on wire. The girls are the same, except their bodies aren't painted and they have a skirt over their bodies made of a painted shell.
The bracelet is in excellent vintage condition. There is some wear to the paint, but not too bad. It measures approx. 7.75 inches long. The people measure approx. 1 inch tall (they vary as they are hand made). The bracelet closes with a hook.
