Breastplate Question

So the Hubby wanted a new Pipebone breastplate made up and insisted I used Leather Lace (I used 1/8 Deer Leather Lace) Now I'm questioning if it's going to hold up I don't want it to break when he's dancing.. I did use buffalo bone and Glass beads it's a full size and a bit heavy, he didn't want side fringe either so they are trimmed.
---So the question is this going to hold up with the leather or should I tell him to suck it up and use Artificial Sinew? What have you guys used and what works the best this is the first one I've made but Dad and son want one as well.

I always use artificial sinew and I always double it. The only time I ever had issues was when I used real brass beads and they were sharp on the inside. Cut right threw it. Changed to a metal covered plastic bead and no more issues , and they look the same.

They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
It's not me....I think you're an idiot !





There's a chance you might not like me ,

but there's a bigger

chance I won't care
