Buffalo Bone & Glass Bead Breastplate with Abalone
Here is a WARRIOR’S 50 ROW BONE BREASTPLATE with 2 rows of professionally cleaned, 4 inch, quality made buffalo bone hair pipes (not the paper thin cheapies or plastic) together with genuine glass crow beads in a vibrant blue & red diamond pattern, real nickle coated round metal beads (nickle reduces rusting & tarnishing, keeps bright shiny appearance) & gobs of hand cut, bright, snow white buckskin fringe.
It also features 2 highly polished round abalone discs with bone, bead & cowrie shell tassels. Thick but supple buckskin leather straps to go around the neck & around the waist from the same buckskin leather used throughout the entire breastplate. This breastplate measures about 20 inches in length by 12 inches wide.
Everything is genuine & top quality ! Wear this with pride & honor with your regalia or display it with your authentic collection. Looks really great ! This breastplate was hand made by artist Gary ‘Redwing’ Hunt.
Gary is not an enrolled tribal member of the Cherokee or Sioux nations, but is descendant of each. Therefore, no legal claim of Native American authenticity may be claimed. But his native spirit is evident in the quality & style of his work.
