The small loom beaded strip has a braided thread and beaded fringe. The panel has pointed ends. It has a yellow field with a red border. Most of the field is occupied by a pink diamond with white and dark blue dots. There is a pink triangle above and below that looks like an arrowhead and pink double ended arrows on each side of the diamond. The fringe is in horizontal stripes of yellow, pink, white, and dark blue.
