Saturday morning the Today Show was on the TV and my mom blurts out, “Do you see her necklace? That’s nothing more than a cow neck chain!”
Upon a closer look she was right. The weekend anchor of the Today Show, Erica Hill, was indeed pretty much wearing a yellow cow neck chain around her neck….
We had a really good laugh about it until the following day, when I again saw another person on TV wearing a similar necklace that to anyone with a dairy background appeared to be just a cow neck chain.
It’s seems the plastic neck chain for livestock is the latest jewelry fashion craze.
After a quick search looking for the retail version of neck chain I quickly discovered my mom wasn’t the only one who noticed Erica Hill’s interesting choice in jewerly. There was a Twitter uproar about the necklace. About half of the viewers loved it and about half hated it.
I had a hard time not responding to these people. I wanted to say-
@Patmcc19- you can get it at your local farm supply store!
@artcctx-No, it’s a plastic livestock chain!
Ironically the necklace is sold out in the yellow color at pono.com, but it’s still available in many other colors. I see necklace style’s similar to this starting to pop up on Pinterest too.
It brings me to this conclusion.
I think I’m going to go to the local farm supply store, buy plastic livestock chain in as many colors as I can find, make necklaces out of them, market them to some teen retail store and make millions.
