Handmade Cher Charm Bohemian Textile Necklace

Part of my new collection, this one-of-a-kind textile necklace is fun, lively, expressive, imperfect, eclectic, unconventional, genuine and simple, yet brave.  This Tondeleya Allen original is for you!

* Coil, comprised of new cotton/cotton-blend fabric, accented with beads and charms, sewn on by hand

* Colors: black and white
* Materials: fabric, thread, charms (hope, joy, love), grosgrain ribbon, gear, washers

* The focal point is a handmade Cher charm.  Cher's face was hand-painted by iCONS artist Aristotle.

* Measures about 23" long from end to end (not including ribbon)

*hand-stitching, hand-beaded

* each tie measures approximately 12"- 13"

* closes at nape with grosgrain ribbon

* Proudly made here in the USA, never mass-produced

* Whenever possible, to add more charm and character, I use vintage fabrics, buttons & other accents & include recycled/re-purposed elements. 

* Due to the length of the necklace, it may be shipped folded or coiled/wrapped in bubble wrap. Thanks for understanding!

* To ensure this item will last, spot cleaning is recommended. Please do not shower, swim or bathe while wearing.  Due to handcrafting, no two items are ever alike.  Please expect variation in color, stitching and patterns.

* Fabric, vintage buttons and colors speak to me, excite me, and shout of creative possibilities.  Even the smallest bits and pieces of exquisite fabrics are cherished and nestled away, where they wait to become an integral part of just the right project.   
 Hours of love and attention to detail went into this wearable art.  This necklace is accented with fibers, stitching, and beads.  Hand-stitching as well as machine-stitching were used to put this piece together.  
I loved making this necklace and I hope it speaks to you and your individuality. I hope you'll be proud to call it your own.  Perhaps this vibrant piece can become one of your favorites.
