This beaded medallion on buckskin backing is in the center of a beaded net. The medallion has a white field with a starburst pattern in the center in light yellow, dark yellow, orange, and black. The starburst is surrounded by a thin black band and appears as the center of a five-petaled orange flower. There is a thin black band near the edge of the medallion. It has picot edging in black and white. The net portion is black with orange beads at the intersections. The net is closed with a hair elastic.
