Cotton poplin shirting swatches are upcycled into a unique statement necklace. Wear it with a blouse or collared button-up shirt to transform it into a modern day play on a men's necktie. These miniature swatches go from solids to stripes in a beautiful pastel colour palette.

Delicately sewn together, this color palette is the unchanged offering from the Italian textile mill.  Sturdy leather cording is hand wrapped with embroidery floss and a flower-shaped glass closure which came from a spare chandelier part I found at a local antique market in Tuscany. 

Please note the possibility of imperfections on these miniature swatches as they are used as is.  Once peeled away from the cardboard there may be remains of paper. This only enhances the pure beauty of the material that is left in its raw and unchanged state. Loose threads may also occur, but for me this is a desired design detail.
