I would think that it should hold up well, especially if you use the Garnets or some soft agent inside. If you use anything hard it will make obvious denting impressions.

If you keep it clean and shiny it would be a very nice piece. I would like to see it when you get it set up.

Many folks wear their military decorations on their Gourd Dance clothes. The gorget is a mini metal breastplate of sorts that I've seen many times being worn on top of bone breastplates. Looks kinda kewl.

You could do either or for the chain/thong. I would personally go with a leather thong w/ beads like what Zotigh posted. I believe that the southeastern tribes wore them more often than other tribes.
