This sassy concho can be worn in a multitude of ways! On a velvet ribbon as a choker...threaded on your favorite hat band...resting on a skinny belt...fed on to a leather cuff... Handmade in the August Axel Jewelry Studio in Venice, CA. The sterling-silver concho was carefully chased and then dapped in a mold to create the iconic shape. The stars were formed from recycled silver and the turquoise was from an estate sale. (Likely Royston). This piece is truly one of a kind.
