I've always wanted to make a bolo tie. This was an absolute treat!
Shattuckite in Chrysocolla stunner stone cut masterfully by Merlin Deshaw, set in a simple bezel with a starry stamping pattern of my own on the backplate. Looped in Red-brown round leather, and finished with my own hand-fabricated sterling and fine silver tips. Silver has been textured with a 'starry night' motif using just a few simple bench tool stamps of my own design.
OOAK and also FIRST of her kind! Very excited to make more of these, but she's a first out of this studio! Very punk rock, or galactic funk, or straight-up cowgirl!
Bolo measures 41" long, tips measure 3.5" long with coin charm. Stone measures 1 1/8" at her widest, 1.5" at her longest.
