Scale Armour Cuff
In the late 1970’s Alex Streeter created a line of “defensive jewelry” after hearing the story of a female friend’s mugging. He used pieces of a taxidermied armadillo to create body armor, and held an event known as the “Bate of the Amazons”. Two tall models wearing his custom creations fought each other in a match stage in a boxing ring in the middle of Prince street, Soho. Many years later, in 1992 he created a scaled-down version of these pieces in jewelry form.
