This is one of a pair of wristbands, or armbands, and is made from buckskin and has beadwork executed using the lazy stitch. The beadwork is multi-colored with dark blue, yellow and brown beads on a white beaded background. The design is geometric, with two mirror image figures; the outline of the image is blue, and the diamond shaped centers are yellow. The beaded triangles on either side of the figures and the rectangle that connects the two figures are beaded brown. Buckskin thongs are used to tie the wristbands closed.
Marie Andrews of Durango, Colorado was the roommate of Sadie Sullivan, daughter of Barry and Nellie Sullivan. Sadie was a librarian at the Durango Public Library. The Sullivans were friends of Buckskin Charley. When Andrews donated a collection of American Indian artifacts in 1961, they were identified as originating from Ute Tribes and other Plains Tribes. In correspondence from Andrews to History Colorado (April 20, 1961), she requested that the collection be accepted in memory of the Barry Sullivan family.
