The NeckLAdle is one of these things. It’s a necklace made out of a segmented wooden spoon and strung on a cord. This sounds impractical for most of us, right? Listen to what the artist had to say about her design…

From the product listing at Crafts Collection, check out Katrine Borup’s thought behind the NeckLAdle:

We adore our wooden spoons, and the thought of an artist celebrating such a simple, functional piece of kitchenware, as well as acknowledging the preciousness of kitchen tools that are handed down through generations, really made our day.
