This wonderfully organic neckpiece utilizes malleable stainless steel threads worked together in contrasting colors to provide an intriguing color depth. Lighter than air fabric can be manipulated to form fluttering tendrils floating freely or flared for a more ruffled appearance or scrunched for a modern crumpled style. Experiment and enjoy the possibilities this design piece provides.

Note: this accessory is worked using 2 strands of A-20/21 in 2 different colors.
