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 large fused glass pendant is a little more than 2 1/2 inches long and 1 3/4 inches wide. Its swaths of silver, lavender, and green dichroic glass beneath a layer of clear glass has fused into an accidental mask design with a center bubble suggesting a nose while gaps between the silver and lavender swaths suggest eyes and a mouth. 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!
