The loom beaded strip is joined at the ends to form a loop. It has a grey field. The repeating design has two elements: four chevrons in combinations of black and translucent yellow with the points inward and two translucent yellow diamonds joined with a rectangle, outlined in black, with light blue centers.

There is looped beaded fringe in bands of grey, translucent yellow, and black.
