This is a Native American tradition. You put your amulet in the bag and wear it close to your heart. It brings you good medicine or luck. The technique I used is an ancient off loom bead weaving technique called Right angle weave. It's usually refer to as raw. The purse is usually 3 inches X 2 inches. Your amulet is anything that fits in the bag that represents you. The strap is wire wrapped and can be as long or as short as you need. I have made some as belts. They do come with a gift.
