The Jingle Dress regalia is a very colorful and bright. The Outfit is normally beaded, though Appliqué Ribbonwork is appropriate. Most dancers wear matching beaded Barrettes, Earrings, Hair Ties, Bracelets, Rings, a Choker with a Neckdrop, a Hairpiece/Headband, Leggings, and Moccasins. The Dress itself gleams with row after row of jingles, numbering into the several hundreds. The jingles are typically made of the lids from snuff cans. The lids are rolled into bell shapes and sewn very closely together onto the dress by ribbons. The closeness of the jingles results in the lovely tinkling sound that is produced when the dancer is right in time with the drum.
