Today in "WTF News," we recently spotted a luxury brand dropping their own version of a colorful floral-beaded necklace. While that in itself isn't out of the ordinary since the popularity of beaded jewelry has boomed in recent months, it's the price that really got to us. Are you ready for it? It costs $3,081, or almost P150,000!
The Bottega Veneta floral-beaded necklace is essentially a colorful daisy chain that is formed on a braided rope. It's accented with black beads for support and style reasons. The entire thing measures 34.5 inches in length that can be adjusted. And as mentioned above, it retails for $3,081—almost P150,000—and is available for reservation on sites like matchesfashion.com.
We're not really sure who in their right minds would spend almost P150,000 on a beaded necklace, but as for us, we'd much rather support local small businesses instead.

If you're feeling ~*crafty*~, you can also purchase kits complete with beads, hooks, and nylon strings on Shopee and Lazada so you can make your own creations!
