Cut Out Butterfly Earrings CN-681


Handmade earrings with intricately cut-out animal jewelry design in butterfly earrings. The Blackfoot Indians believed that butterflies brought them their dreams while they were sleeping. Blackfoot women would embroider a butterfly on a small piece of buckskin. They would tie this piece in the hair of the child when it was time to go to sleep and sing a lullaby to the child. This was the way of asking a butterfly to come and fly about to put the child asleep.
