I can see your thought process. But a few things.

Native Americans in south Georgia did not have or use copper. Granted there may have been trade but I know of none.

Teepees were not used in Georgia or the east to my knowledge.

It looks like a tourist bracelet from someone that visited a Native American Reservation back in 1960s or 1970s. Even the Cherokee in North Carolina were selling trinkets like this back in the day. Maybe even today. The tourists there had no idea the scenes on their trinkets were mostly Plains. And Tony may be right too on hippies. If it is Native American it is modern tourist trinket. Sorry to tell you that.

Not ancient native American. It is made of leather, it is not that old, it would not have lasted much longer than 50 years or so in a wet environment.

Copper . Teepee , indians carrying a conoe . Thats what makes me think that.
The trinket shops usually had bowels of em on the counter. I believe you can still get the plates for your roll mill. Check the jewelry & craft web sites. It used o be a joke in the 60s on the inside they'd be stamped made in Japan.

The Bell Trading Company made a lot of similar looking copper jewelry in the 60s, 70s, etc. It's difficult to see the design, but it might be a Story Teller bracelet.
