  • Belt Drop


    What's your opinion on belt drops? Only one size conchos from belt to floor?
    I have an idea for a belt drop that gradually become smaller to a tip that drags.

      I think it looks nice to have the graduated drop. Otherwise, it looks like you are wearing an extra belt. My drop has two upholstery tassels at the tip instead of the metal tip thingy. I saw an old photo of a Lakota lady using tassels so that's where I got the idea from.

        Most of the women around here have the graduated metal, and have the metal clip on the bottom. I dont know, I just like this look alot. I however, have a black drop that has metal pieces arranged in round flowers, all the way down. I just liked it, so I've been using it this year (was a regulat belt at KMart, only 3 bucks on clearance) and I've gotten alot of compliments about it. One of my cousins used some kind of chemical on her metal pieces that turned it a very rosy coppery color, which is just gorgeous. I haven't been able to ask her what it is that she used, but I"M GONNA!!! I'll pass on the knowledge when I find out!

            I've seen a lot of southern ladies have beaded belt drops. Thats an option as well.

                  I have a beaded drop as well. It's one big piece and it has buckskin at the top that goes through my belt--that way I don't have to take it off and on.

                    I've seen so many beautiful beaded belt drops and the graduated conch ones as well.

                    I have often wondered, what is the significance of the piece?

                      Does anyone use Inkle Looms for weaving sashes/garters for pow-wow regalia? I know it's not as nice as fingerweaving, but how accepted is it as an alternative? I've been seeing them quite often on Voyageur and French & Indian War reenactors.

                      Okay, I've finally gone over the edge. In the search for an old-time blue color, to use on rawhide, I tried a source listed in Gaylord Torrece book on rawhide. On page 45, it lists Ewers reference to the Blackfeet producing a blue pigment from dried duck excrement. I know, I know, there is some old...

                      I've seen a couple here and there at pow wows. Where can I get a beaded baseball cap? From what I hear, someone has to do it for you. Anyone know of anybody in the Phoenix area that does this? How much (price range) does someone usually charge to have one done?
