We were cleaning our warehouse and found these Anishinaabe Bimishimo Jingles. There are 98 Brass Jingles and 41 Copper Jingles of the old stock. Anishinaabe Bimishimo is expected to re-release their Brass and Copper Jingles this summer. But the materials and process has changed (as we understand) and the jingles will look different. If you bought Brass or Copper AB Jingles in 2018, these will match. This is great for finishing up a dress or for a tiny tot or very young junior dancer. Only one available!

Owing to political spats between settler-colonial governments, the cost of the base metal for the brass and copper jingles increased dramatically. Anishinaabe Bimishimo was temporarily forced to cease production of brass and copper jingles while raising funds and seeking a tariff exemption. Fortunately, they are expecting more raw materials and we can hopefully get more brass and copper jingles by Summer 2019. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Anishinaabe Bimishimo is a new manufacturer of jingles, based in Manitoba, Canada. Anishinaabe Bimishimo was founded by Émilie McKinney, of the Swan Lake First Nation. Frustrated at the lack of locally made jingles, Émilie created a design and wrote a business plan. With help from her mother, Natalie Foidart, Émilie is growing her business, with the goal of giving back to her community. We at Bead & Powwow Supply are eager to offer our support and encouragement to Émilie, her family, and their community.

These Jingles have a beautiful, deep sound. The design features a teepee, feathers, and Anishinaabe Bimishimo, meaning Anishinaabe (or native person) dancing by. See below for further discussion on the Anishinaabe language. Jingles are finished with a copper-colored coating. The inside of these jingles are nickel-colored. We recommend using an enamel or clear-coat on them to ensure the copper color stays. 

Rolled jingles measure 2 5/8” at their longest point. The top opening measures approximately ¼” in diameter. We recommend wide bias tape for tying these cones. Some variation in rolled-jingle width is to be expected and tolerated.

Made in Canada
