String this dainty piece around your neck to remind yourself of the ever-attractive farfalle pasta. Meaning “butterflies” in Italian, farfalle represent lightness, playfulness, and rebirth. Also known as strichetti in Emilia-Romagna, farfalle are one of the oldest pasta shapes originating during the 16th century when housewives were looking for creative ways to use up leftover pasta dough from making filled cappelletti and tortellini pasta. Wear the farfalle pasta necklace to evoke a sense of light-heartedness and charm.
