Coxa Neckpiece

  • The Coxa Neckpiece is reminiscent of an Eighteenth Century epaulette. The epaulette is a shoulder adornment worn mainly by military officials to determine rank. The Coxa Neckpiece is a regal piece meat to give importance to the wearer. The glimmering beetle wings make the wearer a force to be reckoned with.
