Stone Bolo — Jade
Greens, earth tones and a touch of golden amber combine in this piece to present a jade effect. While an excellent choice year-round, Kismet's jade also happens to make an excellent understated holiday season accessory. Dark brown leather cord complements the look here, but you may choose from natural, dark brown or black.
The stone effect is made using frit, which is glass crushed to varying sizes. Each stone look is made with a different "recipe" of colors and sizes of frit. After mixing, the process is much the same as the other bolo ornaments with an initial fire, further refinement, then a final fire.
Fun fact: Every element of this bolo is made in the USA!
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 necklace or loosened tie, 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.
