Arrowhead Bolo — Cobalt Blue, Persimmon, Chartreuse Yellow
I'm in love with this color story! The bright cobalt blue with persimmon and chartreuse yellow bars is giving me "80's school photo backdrop" vibes in only the best ways. The blue glass has slight (intentional) color marbling with some translucence. This modern take on a decades-old form of adornment is fresh and unexpected.
How to Wear
The original way to wear a bolo is like a necktie: under a collar with the ornament pulled up close to the neck. For a more relaxed and modern look, I recommend wearing it like a regular necklace: loosened up, with or without a collar.
Pull the glass piece down to make the leather loop large enough to slip over your head. Once on, adjust the glass piece back up as far as you like.
The bolo slide (the metal piece the leather threads through) has to strike a balance between being moveable enough so you can get it on and secure enough that it doesn’t slide down as you wear it. If you find the ornament slipping, try gently bending in the sides of the hardware on the back.
