My cuzin has one that is loomed on the top half and bone on the bottom. Her boyfriend made it for her, and it looks really cool. Wish I had the time and artistry to do something like that.

On another note; how do you make one on a loom? Do you have to have a specially made loom or what.

Also has anyone ever seen Priscilla Shrock's work? It's pretty cool and they look heavy but I guess not.

Exclamation I did it! Twice aiye!!!

Well here they are the smaller one I finished first after I figured all the bones and beads that I needed for my own breastplate. The smaller one came to about 34" and the bigger one came out to 53". I must say I'm dang proud of myself for actually finishing them...on the same day! Can you believe that?! So I hope all the rest of you procrastinators have some inspiration. heehee

Thanks I think the only thing that took me along time was arranging the colors, for the small one.
