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