Pieces of dichroic glass are stacked in a kiln and fused together at 1500 degrees. After the glass has cooled to room temperature, it is ground and beveled into a polished, refined shape. The glass is wrapped with fine silver bezel and the setting is hand fabricated with 22 gauge sterling sheet, designed to fit snugly against the glass and contour the shape of the cab. A bolo back is soldered onto the piece and fit with a braided leather cord and sterling silver tips. All bolo cords are 42″ long with 6 ply leather and may be ordered in either black or brown. These bolo ties are designed in 3 basic styles…arcs, rectangles, or shields.
