Here is a little peek at one of the newest additions on the site, a cool iridescent champagne and navy crystal lariat. This is an interesting piece because it combines the luxury of the crystal with the more organic element of ecru waxed cotton cord. The lariat is about 40" long, and can be worn long, doubled up like a scarf in a couple different ways, or even as a belt. I always love a little versatility :)
One of the things I love most about this piece is the detailing. I've used a couple different varieties of twisted wire to give the impression of metal roping. I was inspired by a cute little sailboat I saw in the northwest while visiting my parents last fall.
I've always wanted to sail, but have never gotten the chance, so this lariat is my homage to all those lovely sea-faring adventures I've always heard about. Hopefully one day I get to experience it for myself!
