Default Ford Focus fashionable, Ford Focus jewelry... not so much

Filed under: Budget, Etc., Hatchback, Ford, UK, Humor



Ford is celebrating 100 years of history in England this year. While a number of celebrations and special events are scheduled to mark the occasion, the automaker has also commissioned some unique jewelry as part of the centennial bash.

Designer Katherine Hawkins was tasked with crafting a piece from components lifted from the Ford Focus and came up with a special necklace design. The piece uses dials, buttons, needles and springs from the hatchback as well as seat material. Hawkins doesn't drive herself, and had little idea of what the parts were actually used for in the vehicle.

We're not quite sure what to say about Hawkins' design other than we wish we could see what the designer could come up with using pieces lifted from '30s Lincoln instead of a 2012 Focus. Given that we aren't entirely smitten by the dial pad mounted in the middle of the vehicle's dash, we'd likely cringe a bit seeing the pieces dangle around anyone's neck.

Hit the jump for the full press release.Continue reading Ford Focus fashionable, Ford Focus jewelry... not so much
