Collection: THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Red & Turquoise Shawl, Earrings & Necklace

Two bold colors that balance each other perfectly, red and turquoise, burgundy and teal – we love it and wear it whenever we need a pick-me-up!  Lola is feeling perky in this red merino wool shawl; a hand-spun, hand-loomed, hand-dyed, and even hand-embroidered beauty with a silk-rayon thread that gives it a little sheen. Topped with a Mongolian lamb collar, this combination makes any winter day better.

We’ve styled it with a stunner of a necklace: a vintage (40 years old) Afghan pendant in a fleur-de-lis shape, set with a ruby colored glass oval and tiny turquoise stones. Brass bell-like dangles are suspended from the tips. Strung with red tubular resin beads, brass hexagon spacers, carved turquoise resin and more red glass and brass beads, it’s finished with a large fish hook clasp set with tiny coral beads.   29″ in length, plus the pendant – check the photos for pendant size!  One of a kind, for sure!

The wire hook earrings are Turkish gold-plated brass repoussé squares, with turquoise cabochons set at the top in a flower motif, turquoise oval dangles and a large faceted ruby at center.  Pendant is nearly 3″ long, including the dangle.
