Beyond the Necklace - Unique Neck Wear Ideas for 2012


Sometimes that plain neckline just needs a bit of ooomph, or you just want to dress things up a bit, or go for something truly eye-catching.  Traditionally, the choice is a scarf or a necklace.  But sometimes, a scarf is too heavy or bulky, or just won't lay quite right.  And sometimes a necklace just doesn't have the drape or the coverage that you want.

Is there a third possibility?  I think so. I've featured three creative neck wear pieces in my Gossamer Tangles studio on ArtFire for the New Year that fall into a category that I would call "Beyond the Necklace, Beyond the Scarf".  In fact, I created a new category in my studio listings in which I placed these pieces because I have a hard time fitting them within the traditional scarf/necklace labels.

The first piece is the Hand-Crocheted Colors of the Sea Sequined Scarf/Necklace (I had to call it something).





Over 100 inches long, but only about 2 1/2 inches wide, it can be worn in a variety of configurations.

The next piece is the  Blushing Champagne Silk Beaded Hand-Crocheted Necklace/Scarf.  Like Colors of the Sea (above), it is long (about 100 inches) and thin (about 1 1/2 inches wide).  Because it is made from pure silk fiber, it has a very soft and luxurious feel and drape.




Finally, there is Sea Garden.  So named because it reminds me of the beautiful coral gardens of a reef.  



These are just a few possible options for getting creative with neck wear in the New Year. Try experimenting with options until you find that unique look that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
