One look at my wardrobe, and you would see a large collection of different scarves and colorful, bold necklaces. However, my love for these two fashion accessories were always at odds – Why did the scarf have to cover the necklace? Why did the necklace have to get stuck in the scarf?
A solution to this style quandary came to me while shopping at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul a few summers ago. I stumbled upon a beautiful scarf that was unlike any other I had seen – it had a hanging silver pendant surrounded by several shiny beads and rings. I immediately bought one for myself… and then bought a few extra. I gave those extras as gifts and they were a huge hit.
As I wore the scarf to work and around town, several friends and co-workers – and even some strangers – would come up and ask me about it. Where did I get it? How could they get one? I had never seen a scarf similar in a local store, so I did what I thought was best: I decided to make them myself. My husband and I jumped right in and got to work.
What started as a simple craft project has grown into so much more than I ever could have imagined. We are now working with over 20 colors, 50 different pendants, and 30 types of beads. To top it all off, we are finding great success selling scarves at the different craft fairs we attend.
