Chains of elongated brass links run down the chest and finish in a triple festoon. Connected horizontally by 16 genuine porcupine quills set into brass fittings. Strong magnetic clasp. Handmade in Big Sur by Skullptress. One-of-a-kind. Porcupine quills measure 3.5" across. Chains that go around the neck from either end of the top quill are each 8.5" long, for a total around-the-neck length of 20.5". From there the breastplate and chains extend downward an additional 12". Inspired by ancient myth, grounded in natural materials. Festival finery. Everyday exquisite. Perfect for the southwestern gypsy in your life.

"The intention [is] to adorn women with energetically empowering jewelry, supporting her highest potential and most sacred self, inspiring healing, self love, and personal empowerment." Sacred adornment for the temple of your body!
