This lead-filled fur necklace has a modest yet sensual appearance. The ‘heaviness’ of its contents is only apparent when the user lifts the necklace or puts it on. Both the look and the application of fur in the context of fashion are very contemporary. The collar is decidedly a new design, but at the same time seems as if it has always existed.
The design is interesting in the way in which the necklace implicitly confronts both its wearer and onlookers with an issue.
The jury was charmed by the idea, the appearance, the material, the execution and the presentation. Everything makes sense in this well-balanced design.
