Four black rhodium plated turtle shells are arranged in the four directions pattern. They are strung on leather cord dyed with lead-free dyes in either turquoise, purple, black or white.
The Loksi (turtle) is a central aspect of the Stomp Dance. Shells are filled with pebbles and bound together on leather. Women then wear them on their legs as they dance, creating the rhythm of the music. Each wrap bracelet celebrates the continuity of the stomp dance
The wrap bracelet is cast in bronze and black ruthenium plated.
Each bracelet wraps around most wrists three times and is finished with a KDD logo tag on one end. The other end may be trimmed down.
