My initial thought was to make as skinny a spiral rope as I could possibly make as the neck strap and to make it L O N G to triple it around the neck. I wanted it to mimic the look of the spoon handle. By the time I got a mere 2 inches into weaving the chain, it was apparent that the chain was going to distract from the spoon. So I went light and lacy instead.
At this point, Fleur was quite perturbed when I covered her up for this picture. She doesn't ever feel the need to hide her colors. She let me snap this one picture then she abruptly ended the shoot. Diva.
You still cannot see the gorgeous iridescence in this photo, but rest assured it is there!
