Athapaskan style firebag

Kate C. Dincan in "Northern Athapaskan Art. A Beadwork Tradition" wrote: ...At the turn of the century, beaded firebags were an important male costume accessory among the Cree and in several Athapaskan areas, particularly among the Sekani and Tahltan and along the Tanana and Yukon rivers (1989, pp. 121).
This firebag is inspired by ornaments of Great Slave Lake-Mackenzie River Region. I used stylized floral motifes combination from other regions too. So this bag could be from Northern Plains or Metis or Yukon Territory too. I used brass tack inside the flower and it's my own variation of this design. Of course I used the couching stitch.
