OBSESSORIZING: Native American Breast Plate

Sometimes all you need is a pop of detail.

This striking archival hair pipe breastplate was created with plated silver beads, leather fringe and bone hair pipe. Back in the day, these tight fitting breastplates made of bone were used by Indians for protection in heated battles. Artifacts like this truly are a reflection of man’s skills, his techniques and his arts.

It has since then found a new home in my ever growing accessory collection!
