The neck piece of my Nefertiti costume was the one I was least satisfied with. I used the same black and gold trim as I did on the waist piece, but the gold trim was not flexible enough to curve for this. It was a stupid mistake on my part. Once again, I hit JoAnn's, only to be disappointed anew by their lack of selection. Out of desperation, I bought six big gold buttons and the pendant piece. Once again, I eyeballed the placement, rather than measuring. And once again, I used hooks and eyes, rather than Velcro, for the closure.
