An influential initial necklace

Mischievously, the initial necklace chimed in with its “own” views

during the 90-minute debate, tweeting: “Do you really want her

hanging around your neck for another four years? Believe me, as a necklace, I know what I’m talking about.”

This wasn’t the Custom Name Necklace first public outing. Merkel wore it on the day she won a second term as chancellor in 2009. But its public career might be over now, damaged by too much buzz.

“Now she will probably never wear me again,” the Name Necklace┬ásadly signed off.
