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.
