CRAFTY CINEMA: The Tourist-inspired Neck Collar

Friday, December 10, 2010

Inspiration for the necklace design! Here is Angelina, wearing the original neck collar in the film, The Tourist.

Jeweled Neck Collar

Designed by Kathy Cano-Murillo
In the psychological thriller, The Tourist, Angelina Jolie plays a mysterious English vixen that enters the life of an American tourist (Johnny Depp). But she’s not there to help him read a map or find the nearest diner. Instead she is bent on using him to help her get revenge on a former flame. There is one pivotal scene where Angelina dazzles the dance floor while wearing a gorgeous diamond-encrusted neck collar. It’s as brilliant as the plot twists in the flick. Here is a crafty DIY version of that stunning necklace!
