The picture is a scan of an amulet bag I made a few years ago. The subject is Rufferto, the hound who has attached himself to Groo, Sergio Aragones' mendicant warrior.
The bag is made in peyote st using 15/0 seed beads, bead appliquet and simple fringe. The strap (not pictured) attaches with a button and loop closure, and may be worn as a necklace without the bag.
To learn more about Rufferto, or Groo-- go to www.groo.com (a fan club) or to www.povonline.com (run by Mark Evanier, Sergio's partner and writer for the Groo adventures) and click on the link to "Groo the Wanderer".
