This necklace is your instant conversation starter. From afar it’s all slim geometry gracing your neck. Unusual enough that people will want to move in closer to you. That’s when you get to spill the bean. What they’ve been riveted by is a sexy haricot vert. Or maybe he or she was drawn to you, because, lady, you look fabulous in this piece. The vine clings romantically to the gold collar in a curlicue whimsy.
The neckline is of utmost importance here. Remember the 4 S's, and you can't go wrong with your choice of either sweetheart, scoop, square or strapless. We'd also like to throw in the choice of asymmetrical (even though it doesn't fit the 'S' theme).
Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi kills it with his bean recipes; or go eat at one of his London restaurants.
If you decide to grow beans, they take roughly two months to mature.
Some French Filet beans start out purple like the Velour variety at Territorial Seed.
