Absolutely beautiful. So many lovely feathers. I would loooove to see in progress photos of the beading if you get around to it
I would actually love to see some close-up shots of the pieces if you ever have time! They look awesome as a group but I bet detail shots would really convey all the work involved!
Also, could you please bear with my ignorance here.... I don't think I actually know what the long white "beads" on the breastplate are. I have an idea but I don't know if I'm right or not! Actually, come to think of it I bet I don't know what any of the items are actually made from!
Any info you could give on what things are made of would be awesome!
Everything looks wonderful!
He just left to go dance for the weekend, but I will post some detail shots on Monday when he comes back. The breastplate is made of bone beads, deer bones to be specific. There are also some brass beads in there. It's decorated with abalone shells, deer hide thongs and porcupine-quill medicine wheels.
The Roach (head piece) is made of white-tailed deer hair, porcupine hair and yarn, hand tied in tiny bunches that are about 1/2 cm wide.
