How can I access a Rust Iterator from Python using PyO3?

I'm quite new with Rust, and my first 'serious' project has involved writing a Python wrapper for a small Rust library using PyO3. This has mostly been quite painless, but I'm struggling to work out how to expose lazy iterators over Rust Vecs to Python code.

So far, I have been collecting the values produced by the iterator and returning a list, which obviously isn't the best solution. Here's some code which illustrates my problem:

use pyo3::prelude::*;

// The Rust Iterator, from the library I'm wrapping.
pub struct RustIterator<'a> {
    position: usize,
    view: &'a Vec<isize>

impl<'a> Iterator for RustIterator<'a> {
    type Item = &'a isize;

    fn next(&mut self) -> Option<Self::Item> {
        let result = self.view.get(self.position);
        if let Some(_) = result { self.position += 1 };

// The Rust struct, from the library I'm wrapping.
struct RustStruct {
    v: Vec<isize>

impl RustStruct {
    fn iter(&self) -> RustIterator {
        RustIterator{ position: 0, view: &self.v }

// The Python wrapper class, which exposes the 
// functions of RustStruct in a Python-friendly way.
struct PyClass {
    rust_struct: RustStruct,

impl PyClass {
    fn new(v: Vec<isize>) -> Self {
        let rust_struct = RustStruct { v };
        Self{ rust_struct }

    // This is what I'm doing so far, which works
    // but doesn't iterate lazily.
    fn iter(&self) -> Vec<isize> {
        let mut output_v = Vec::new();
        for item in self.rust_struct.iter() {

I've tried to wrap the RustIterator class with a Python wrapper, but I can't use PyO3's #[pyclass] proc. macro with lifetime parameters. I looked into pyo3::types::PyIterator but this looks like a way to access a Python iterator from Rust rather than the other way around.

How can I access a lazy iterator over RustStruct.v in Python? It's safe to assume that the type contained in the Vec always derives Copy and Clone, and answers which require some code on the Python end are okay (but less ideal).
