Bolo Neck Ties

During my sick day yesterday I decided to take on an at home project and make my first bolo neck tie! I used some broken ceramics I had left over from the crash for the inner decoration and hand braided that bad boy! 

I found the most amazing vintage bolo neck tie when I was on my third year Fine Arts field trip to Chicago in the fall. We had stopped off in Minneapolis for a few days and a friend and I discovered Black List Vintage where I found an old flight attendant bolo featuring an airplane - I have been in love with them ever since! So this is the first of many bolo neck ties I will be making. I'm going to be making some featuring my paintings soon so stay tuned!
