This breastplate is made from over a hundred real buffalo bone hairpipe beads, silver, copper or brass beads (shown with silver) and over 225 glass trade beads (shown with green and white crow beads).
This breastplate is decorated with a 3" abalone disk tipped with brass, copper or aluminum cones (shown with aluminum, which are a silver color) and two ermine tails. The sides are finished off with real buckskin fringe (shown with beige buckskin).
You can customize the leather colors and bead combinations on this breastplate.
On the metal bead choices, if you choose Crow Beads Only, then a crow bead of the same or a different color will be substituted for the metal beads. If you want a different color crow bead in the center than is used in the side rows, leave a comment in the comment box on your checkout form. We usually have the colors of crow beads shown here
