Iron Horn - Monumental - The 5 Day of December

I start out making a quirt. A quirt or ridding crop, is used to whip the horse into action, but Indians made them to do double duty. They could be used as weapons. This crop will be hanging from the wrist of the hand holding the gun.

Well that's all I could do today. My shoulders, still hurting from yesterdays bead making, were just to painfull. Put in a full day and was going to put in some more time.. but just could take the pain any longer today. I'll be better tomorrow.
Here is a final photograph of the new fringe and beads on the right shoulder. Tomorrow the left shoulder.
