Handmade Scarves at Allegory Gallery...

I'm going to be brutally honest... I have a skinny neck – like bobblehead kind of skinny neck.  And it gets really cold in the winter.  To combat the frigid temperatures, I have a collection of handmade scarves.  They are probably my favorite wintertime accessory as they can be switched out and add new life with color and texture to my rather neutral (and dare I say it, "drab") winter gear.

That's why I love these handmade scarves.  They are all crafted by hand by an artist here in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  Each one is one-of-a-kind and completely unique!  She uses a mix of vintage sari silk ribbons, Merino wool, banana fibers, and silk to create these lovely works of wearable art.  I wear one of mine EVERYDAY during the cold months and receive so many compliments.  I have to admit that I was hesitant to post them, as I wanted to keep them all for myself!  But I have about half a dozen already and didn't want to be too greedy!  CLICK HERE to see the selection we've uploaded to Allegory Gallery's online Store.
