Bolo Ties Handcrafted with Exotic Woods Mother of Pearl Turquoise
These handcrafted one-of-a-kind western and southwestern bolo ties are purchased directly from the owner and crafter--LMN Turquoise of Albuquerque, New Mexico, so are "made in USA", "made in America"--actually "made in New Mexico". Owner Larry S. hand cuts each piece of exotic wood, mother of pearl (or abalone), turquoise, or other gemstone (such as rainbow calsilica--the multi-colored striped stone). He has been in this business for over twenty years right here in New Mexico, and he only buys the brass blanks. This is a great gift idea for the guy (or gal, who are we to be prejudiced! : ) who has everything or is hard to buy for.
The large bolo ties measure 2.25" long x 1.5" at the top and have a clip closure on the back. The small ones are 1 3/8" long and between 1 1/8 and 1 1/4" long. Some examples of the exotic woods used are wenge, kingwood, rosewood, zebra wood Guatamalan rosewood, paduk, and black palm. These make excellent gifts for the person who appreciates southwestern apparel and western styles with a desire for genuine exotic hardwoods and turquoise or mother of pearl. Both small and large size bolos have the same heavy-duty 2.25" brass tips on the ends.
Each comes with a card reading "LNM Turquoise is a small Albuquerque company owned by Larry M*, who purchases the stone chunks or slabs, pieces of Mother of Pearl, and slabs of exotic wood and then hand-cuts each piece and inlays it for unique one-of-a-kind money clips, key rings, bolo ties and knives. LNM Turquoise is a wholesaler only, and the only place on the internet you can purchase the New Mexico-made items is from www.new-mexico-online.com, another New Mexico-owned and operated small business! 575-740-3889 Truth or Consequences, NM"
