On The Fringe

A few days ago, I put my hand into a box of suede tassels which I have specially made by an awesome US leather company which I was so grateful to find, and I got that itch to create something new. First of all, I love these suede tassels. They are so super soft and there is something absolutely luscious about a box full of them. So I pulled the box off the shelf and began to get inspired. My worktable in the studio was soon covered in tassels, jade beads, vintage crosses, antique keys, lockets and freshwater pearls. As with all creative ventures, not all of the pieces you begin with make the final cut. Here is the necklace which came about that day:
I call it, On The Fringe.
It is 23″ long and made from Italian leather, textured gold-plated chain, freshwater pearls with etched bead caps, the ExVoto toggle closure at the front, and of course the 3″ suede tassels. This fall season sees the return of one of my favorite layering pieces, the turtleneck, and this necklace works great with a turtleneck. Leather, tassels, and turtlenecks are all on this season’s Must Have lists–so here you go! Have fun! But don’t deliberate over this piece too long, I have decided to only make four of them!
On The Fringe necklace is $233. Call the ExVoto Showroom for more info. We can gift wrap and ship. 334.649.9121
