Glass beads are strung with wire in lines that are periodically passed through hide spaces. A spacer is found at the start and at the end of each line. The beads are cut tubular beads in red, white, blue, orange and green colors. Along the edge larger pod shaped beads (black and white) edge the collar. These are also used in the central vertical band .
