Chokers have been revived from the 90’s, along with many other trends. They are incredibly cute, and can elevate a simple outfit like you wouldn’t believe.
There have been many different types of chokers come into light. There’s lace chokers, jem chokers, shoe lace chokers, thick, thin, you name it. A difficult problem is finding a choker thats different and cute. There might be all different types, but sometines it seems like every store carries the same ones. Another problem for me is that a lot of these chokers can be on the pricey side. For example I saw a choker for $15. That might not seem like a lot to fortunate people, but for little ole college girl like me, $15 is lunch for three days.
So if you’re like me with a love of fashion and a sad little bank account, keep on reading! You’ve come to the right place.
The first one I’m going to show you how to make is a very simple ribbon choker.
You’re going to want to measure a little smaller than the actual length of your neck, because we’re going to be adding a clasp.
You’re going to grab about five of these little circle things and loop them together. This will create an adjustable feature to your choker.
Once you have the circles linked, and the clasp ready, all that’s left to do is glue them to the ends of the ribbon.
I like to use this Tacky glue. It’s especially made for jewelry making. All of these tools can be found at a craft store, such as Hobby Lobby.
I really like the thickness of this choker. It’s super chic and easy to make.
This mesh one was made the same way. It’s by far my favorite. These were super cheap, super fast, and can be done with almost any ribbon.
This next one I’m going to show you is fast, and requires even less materials.
You’re going to need charms and these thin chains. You can get about yard of the chain. You’re going to measure just a little but longer than you’re actual neck length, to insure you don’t choke, regardless of the name.
I used a little piano charm for this necklace. It hangs a little looser around you’re neck. All you have to do is add your charms and that’s literally it. Although it seems way too easy, it comes out stunningly unique. I have no idea why more people aren’t doing this.
Those are the two I wanted to show you. I love making jewelry and playing around with it, and I thought these were so trendy.
I’m hoping to start selling these soon. If you’re interested in that, please let me know. I’ll keep you posted if I ever develop an inventory.
Thank you so much for reading. A lot of DIY’s I’ve seen require many materials that are expensive, so I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.
