"Bead work for our people is an art form that allows our spiritual medicine to come forward. Masterpieces happened when our ancestors worked with beads. There is a harmony in the universe that allows us to make beautiful art from beads"... (a visit with Apache heritage beadwork artist J. Skywolf)

An original work from the Hairston Roberson Ropa collection this beauty was handcrafted sometime in the 1980's / 1990's. Set to fit a size medium this lovely vest showcases a design pattern cultivated from the Plains and/or Plateau nations of Native America. Held in a private Texas collection since it was crafted this unique beaded vest was only recently made available for purchase.
