Native Americans first used “Hairpipes” made from shells or bird bones as simple ear ornaments or hair ornaments.  Later, they made hairpipes into necklaces, chokers and most strikingly, into Breastplates.  In the later 19th century, Bone Hairpipe became the material of choice. Bone Pipe Stems from corn cob pipes were even made into Hairpipe! Breastplates became symbols of status and Necklaces and Bandoleers gained in popularity during the Reservation period.

Today, we offer Hairpipe in several materials besides Bone. Buffalo Horn Hairpipe and Amber Hairpipe remain popular. Additionally we sell Ultra Thin Hairpipe, Burnished Hairpipe and Antiqued Hairpipe.  You can create chokers, bracelets, necklaces and breastplates in a variety of colors and looks.
