Vintage Button Lariat (sold!)

Toby makes Lariat style necklaces and bracelets to order, email to talk colours! A long lariat, similar to the one pictured here, would cost £24, and a shorter bracelet, £16. These prices are for pieces with vintage beads and buttons, however similar styles using new materials are much cheaper.

Sybille commissioned Toby to make her this long black/slate-grey lariat to match the bracelet I made for her (see earlier post) It is made from 3 strands of hand dyed hemp knotted with some beautiful glass buttons, a bead made from volcanic lava, mother of pearl buttons, vintage glass, and handmade beads, all sorts of treasures! The lariat is versatile, it has a loop which you can slip the other end through to wear, or hook over one of the buttons to fasten. It can be worn as a necklace, or wrapped around the wrist a few times as a bracelet.

I was so pleased that Sybille commissioned Toby, as she makes lovely jewellery herself, and could have made her own lariat, but she didnt. Sybille also bought the natural coloured hemp and shell necklace/bracelet that we recently showed you. What a credit to Toby, selling his work to such an accomplished craftswoman!
