I imagine that if I were still of the type that liked to get dressed up and attend formal functions, I would wear something like this with a strapless dress, the silk cord tied in a gentle bow at the nape of my neck.
But I'm not. The days of sorority formals have long since passed and I spend my Saturday nights enjoying the comforts of a prairie home. I still love creating this sparkling beauty for the world even though I have limited functions in which to wear it.
So here's a chance to get some Swarovski crystal, some Montana-dyed silk, and a little bit of class in warm shades of auburn. There's nothing complicated about the closure. A simple bow-tie will do the trick. I love the colors in the necklace. They remind me of all that is near and dear to my heart.
