This is a 55 row bone breastplate with the entire center done in pony beads. In order to stabilize the center, Gary has backed the pony bead section with garment grade leather. The pony beads are sewn onto the leather so they will not lose their shape. The leather is still soft enough to wear against the skin if so desired. Then there is all that gorgeous fringe !
This breastplate is 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.
