Custom design your own Bolo Tie or Necklace!
Once you've picked your pendant (also called the "bolo slide"), then simply choose your tips and your cord, and decide on the bolo length you like best.
This fused glass pendant is 1 1/4 inches square with rounded corners. It features a vibrant ring of dichroic glass jewels in magenta, turquoise, teal, orange, lavender, and gold mounted on a black glass base. The dichroic glass pieces are under a layer of clear glass, so you have the sense of looking into little pools of molten glass. Each little glass pool is raised to create a textured effect. The glass is Italian, from the island of Murano where the finest glass has been made for centuries.
You have a choice of 5 tips -- smooth tapered tips in silver or copper, twisted tips in silver or copper, and tips in a special Navajo Design.
You have a choice of 4 cords -- black, dark brown, silver & black, and copper. The cords are leather, except for the silver & black which is synthetic although you wouldn't know it. The copper cord is a bit more delicate and may fray if you don't handle your bolo carefully.
To determine the bolo length you want, decide how far you want it to hang down your front -- where do you want the bolo tips to end? Then measure from that point to the middle of the back of your neck. Length is a matter of personal taste -- anything goes!
This is meant to be fun!
