Metal cones or "tinklers" as they are often referred to in accounts dating back several centuries, have been a favorite Native American ornament since the 17th century. These metal cones are made of a sheet metal trapezoid shape that is rolled into a cone.
These metal cones are attached to knife sheaths, moccasins, bags, or other clothing such as scalp locks on war shirts (with long horsehair inserted). Tufts of dyed deer or other fur or feathers are often inserted into these cones as well.
