I like to see all types, I am not very good at making any of them and I admire all those who have that talent. I also say Unique :regular_s

Are you talking about a dress with the above described jingles, or the Jingle Dress of the Ojibwe People with the above described decorations?

Hey Lee! Long time no see!

I have seen deer toed jingle dresses. They look and sound nice. I would think sea shells would crack if they were hit against each other so it wouldn't be a good idea. In an interview I did, the informant from the Lake of the Woods area of Ontario said the original jingle dresses of her area were made of bird bones. Another informant from Mille Lacs in Minnesota assured me that they weren't!

New trends are usually instigated by powwow champions. Others usually follow trends by popular dancers. However when someone who is just starting comes out with something unique, dancers just laugh and go on their merry way...

We have dresses with half jingles/half toes to full deer toe jingles where i powwow. They sound very nice and look really awesome next to that contemporary fabric.

Not a jingle dress as would be recognized as such by easterners/southerners.

Even my mocs have jingles on them. This pic is one of the boots mocs, mine are just to the ankle.


WhoMe, I've had seashells on my dress for about 25 years, only one has ever broken and it was because something heavy fell on the dress while it was in the car not because I was dancing. I had collected the shells from my home island about 30 years ago.
