Bread and Roses
In ivory, this beaded shawl is inspired by, and pays homage to the worldwide call for suffrage and equality.
This shawl is stunningly elegant and incredibly light while still providing warmth. It will work in a variety of settings, from an evening out, to cuddling up in a lakeside cabin watching storms roll over. It would also work beautifully as a shawl for a winter or fall wedding.
