This is the type of article worn by warriors on the Southern Plains as seen in historic photographs and pictographs. Two inch hairpipes from Mother-of-Pearl and antique blue Padre beads strung to harness leather with brain-tanned buckskin thongs braided at the sides.

Attached at the bottom of the breastplate is a gorget with three najas. The gorget is made of German (nickel) silver in a long cloud shape with scalloped bottom edge. The gorget has rocker engraving on the recto depicting 4-directions motif. The piece is given an overall aged appearance.
