Description

 On Exhibit
 

We used our net cradle charms to protect our babies. The small wooden hoops filled with netting were made to catch evil forces such as colds, illness and bad spirits. We hung a single net charm on the hoop of the tihchinâkin or cradleboard or attached one to the baby’s moss bag.
