Crystal collar

The detachable collar used to be a money saving item that could be washed separate from the shirt and thus prolonged life of the shirt. Nowadays, we can buy anything we want and we throw away clothing with ease if there is a hole in it or we don’t like it anymore.
Crystal collar is a response to this consumer society. By overgrowing the detachable collar with crystals, I give more value to fashion. Being a reminder to stop wasting so much clothing.

The necklace has a biodegradable embellishment in form of another type of naturally grown crystals.
There is no sewing or gluing involved and the embellishment is biodegradable
