“A bolo tie (sometimes bola tie or shoestring necktie) is a type of necktie consisting of a piece of cord or braided leather with decorative metal tips or aglets (aiguillettes) secured with an ornamental clasp or slide.” Wikipedia
A friend and I were chatting one day about my jewellery. We decided it was too “girly” for men to wear. I joked that I could make it more masculine by making one of my bows into a bow tie or…a bolo tie. And the idea for my Bow-lo Tie necklace was born.
However, these turned out anything but masculine! My Bow-lo Ties are fresh, feminine and flirty. Paired with a lace top and jeans, or with a feminine dress and leather boots, this necklace is the perfect accessory to give your outfit a little cowgirl flare!
