The 9 Banded Armadillo has a durable shell made from a composite of hard mineral tiles. The bony armor called the osteoderm is made up of a top-level of keratin. Beneath this top layer, there are hexagonal or triangular tiles that are made from bone. The hexagonal pieces make such ornate earrings. One 5mm sits between the scutes for a delicate and classic design. They are playful and elegant all at once. These earrings measure 1 inches which include the silver plated French style finding with ball.
