cheap ray bans How to Make a Bolo Tie

November
16

How to Make a Bolo Tie

The bolo tie (or bola tie) is a unique necktie often associated with Western wear. This sleek tie provides an understated yet polished look, and can be worn in a variety of environments, from professional to casual. In 1971, the bolo tie became the official neckwear of the state of Arizona. Neighboring New Mexico adopted the bolo tie as the state’s unofficial neckwear in 1987, and made it the official tie of New Mexico in 2007. Although bolo ties are often synonymous with Western wear and are popular with men, the tie can be stylized to fit any look and women can pull off the look too. Making your own bolo tie is not only fun, but allows for creative expression that reflects your personal style something you can’t buy in a store.

Select a braided leather cord in your desired color. The cord needs to be about 40 inches long, and the ideal thickness is approximately four millimeters. Place the cord around your neck with the ends hanging down evenly in front of you like the bolo tie will be worn. If the cord is too long for your taste, trim it using a pair of sturdy scissors. Most bolo tie cords are between 36 and 40 inches long, so don’t trim it too short.

Slip one end of the braided leather cord through one of the two bends in the bolo slide. Remove the cord and set it aside. If the cord does not fit, gently pry open the bend using a pair of pliers to make room for the cord to slip in later on.

Gently file the edges of the metal bolo slide using a metal file, concentrating especially around the bends where the cord will come in contact with the metal. This helps smooth the surface to prevent damage to the cord. When you are done, remove any residue using a damp cloth to wipe the surface of the slide, and then dry it with a clean dry cloth.

Pick a medium or large decorative button, pendant or polished stone with a flat backside. This will be the "centerpiece" of your bolo tie. Wipe the backside of the button, pendant or stone with a damp cloth to remove residue, and dry it thoroughly with a clean dry cloth.

Glue the button, pendant or stone to the flat front side of the bolo slide using a secure jewelry glue. Follow the usage instructions included with your jewelry glue, and let it dry for the greater of an hour or the amount of time recommended in the glue’s instructions.

Assemble the bolo tie by sliding both ends of the leather cord through the two bends in the backside of the bolo slide one cord end through one bend, and the other cord end through the other bend. Make sure that you slide the cord ends through the bends from the top to assure that the orientation of your button, pendant or stone will be correct.

Gently tighten the bends of the bolo slide around the leather cord with a pair of pliers. You want the bolo slide to still be able to slide up and down the leather cord, but you want the bends to be snug enough so the slide doesn’t slip down on its own.

Attach the metal bolo tips to your new bolo tie as the finishing touch. Apply a small amount of glue inside each bolo tip, and then push the tips onto each of the leather cord ends. Secure the tips on the cord ends with a pair of pliers, if needed.

Wear the bolo tie by sliding the bolo slide down to the tips. Put the bolo tie over your head, and once the tie is around your neck, slide the bolo slide up to your desired position. For a more polished or professional look, have the bolo slide up higher, or to be more casual, place the slide only halfway up the cord.

Media Musings Blog Archive Steve Jobs

Yesterday, founder and former CEO of Apple Steve Jobs died. Though he had been battling cancer for many years, his death was a shock. Only two months ago he still headed the world’s coolest technology company.

Jobs survived the 1990s tech bubble. He and Apple came through a near bankruptcy and rebuilt to become one of the world’s wealthiest and most recognizable brands. For this, and for making technology user friendly, he deserves our respect.

The tributes quickly turned from the man to the company. It’s understandable. Jobs lived for Apple: he was its driving force, its vision. Even Julia Gillard said he was a man who changed our world But it is here that the tributes become nauseating.

So why was the media so keen to emphasis the good points about Steve Jobs, to the extent of glorifying a company which has been accused of abusing workers rights and of anti competitive behaviour?

One, Steve Jobs just died. It difficult to write badly of the dead, even if they have flaws. And Jobs, more than most CEOs, embodied his company. It extremely difficult to write of Jobs separate from his company.

Secondly, journalists tend to love Apple. Journalists aren programmers or tech experts, but they rely on computers. Apple user friendly design may have blinded them to some the company flaws. Also, while the vast majority of journalists have an iPad, the vast majority of the population does not. The disconnect can lead journalists to over emphasis Apple significance. Many of Apple signature products were not new when they were released, but under Jobs guidance the company found ways to repackage and sell old technology. But this diminishes his significance. marketer with its overtones of trickery, wouldn sell as many papers as changed our world is a pity. In misdirecting our praise, we gloss over the true achievements of an extremely creative man.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!


What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.


Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet.  He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.


Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
