Bright and Bold Neck Pieces

Neck pieces are a commonly overlooked accessory, but they can make a bold, and as this faux-snakeskin neck piece (below) visually illustrates, an often otherworldly statement.

Closing in the front with a wonderfully contrasting vintage button, this earthy piece by Belgian-born New York artist Regine Karmeli offers opportunity for connecting with the feminine anima at woodland picnics, fairy festivals, or any day that you might need a Fantastic accent.

Next, imagine a curling leaf regally adorning a creature of the woods…

Latvian textile artist Lina Freimane can wrap you up in this hand-felted and sewn, textured merino wool piece in bright sunflower orange, embellished with ribbon (above). It’s lightweight, can be worn in a variety of ways, and can be complimented with glittering, fire-polished beading, also offered by the artist. Available until only days before this piece published here on FairyRoom, we hope Freimane’s etsy store, Fluffy Raccoon, will list another one soon (especially as this wrap also comes in red-rose or ivory white). We’ll update this info if availability changes.

Switching our review of bright and bold neck pieces back to leather is the collar in the Elf & Fairy Wear Collection by Star Douglass of Silver Willow (below).

This hand-crafted leaf motif collar can be matched with overskirts and other pieces — no two leaves are quite the same (see below for a detail). But whichever type of textile or tone you select, adding a handsome, well-crafted neck piece makes accenting your fairy costume repertoire so easy!
