At Jeremy Scott‘s Spring 2013 Runway Show, he was seen wearing a custom 24K gold SpongeBob SquarePants Pharaoh Necklace. Word is that the necklace is actually a Burger King toy from 2005 painted with an electro-conductive spray paint and electro-formed over a period of two weeks coating the soft plastic toy in an even copper shell. The SB was then plated in a layer of nickel and then a layer of 24kt gold. As a finishing touch he added jet black Swarovski Crystals set into the eyes, producing some crazy bling! now that makes you think what is under all that bling right?
