White Shrug




Artist Statement:  This cozy and soft shrug is made by a 100% white wool yarn knitted with a stylish lacy pattern... all edges are finished off with crocheted borders. You can fast it on the front with two cords which end with two little roses with a glass pearl core... play with these two flowers... you can insert the stalks in various positions and give a different look to the shrug... you can even insert the stalks in a little ring and you will have a lovely necklace to wear with the bolero or by itself.

“White Garden” is my own unique pattern... a gorgeous accent to any outfit and a perfect accessory for many occasions... you can wear it over a simple sweater for a funky style, over a blouse or a sleeveless top to warm your shoulder... it looks exquisite when worn with an evening dress and makes an exquisite accessory even for a bride or a bridesmaid.

~ 51.18” (~ 130 cm.) around the neck/body opening.

Nocturne Necklace

The necklace chain measures a bit over 18 inches (including the clasp). The lobster clasp is sterling silver and attaches to a closed sterling silver ring.
