Chokers are the kind of garments that make a woman’s neck look slender and stylized. Despite being basically very simple, they give an air of elegance to those who wear them. In the following step by step, you will get 5 suggestions for you to learn how to make them yourself, which you will surely love.
Materials you will need:
- Thin dark colored laces.
- Jewelery balls.
- Leather cords for necklace or chokers.
- Terminals, carabiners and closures.
- Black ribbons.
- Curved jewelry tubes.
- A meter and a half of suede.
Procedure for the elaboration of the Chokers:
We are going to make 5 super easy Chokers so that you are always in the latest fashion:
First Choker to make:
one.- Cut a piece of cord the same size as your neck and make a normal knot, insert a ball and with a pin, cross that cord right through the center and as close to the ball as possible.
two.- Pass the cord under that pin as if surrounding it and now that end that you have in your hand you have to put through that hole that has been left between the needle and the thread, what this does is that the knot is just glued to the pellet.
3.- Once tightened, you can now remove the pin and tighten the knot well. Repeat this with two more balls and at both ends of the cord, we will place a zipper closure to which we will add a carabiner washer on one side and a washer on the other. That way, you already have the first Choker.
Second Choker to craft:
one.- For the second Choker, you must cut 10 centimeters of wire and wind it through a pencil, a brush or whatever you have and we will make a kind of bow.
two.- Now roll one of the ends down to form the infinity symbol. This is actually very easy, just keep in mind what the shape is like. Cut those leftovers right where the center stick is, this is important so that everything stays together.
3.- Now cut 20 centimeters of leather cord and fold it in half. Put that little circle that remains in the center through infinity and put the ends through it.
4.- Do the same on the other side with the other leather cord. Remember that they are 20 centimeters long. You fold it in the middle and thread it through infinity, thread the end through the loop and tighten it. Now you only have to put a terminal, a carabiner with it on one side and a single washer on the other.
Third Choker to craft:
one.- For the third cut a piece of tape a little smaller than your neck and put some terminals on it. Now get some round terminals and place them right in the middle of the tape.
two.- Now, with a washer, hang any pendant you have at home on them; in our case we have put a little rose that we have made with a piece of wire. Put a washer on one side and a carabiner washer on the other and you’re good to go.
Fourth Choker to make:
one.- For the fourth, cut a piece of ribbon and a piece of cord and attach them with a bite lock. The cord should be a little longer than the ribbon, insert one of these curved tubes through the cord and you can now close with a toothed terminal.
two.- With a slightly large washer you can now hang a little something on the Choker to give it some grace. This one also looks pretty good on its own.
Fifth Choker to craft:
one.- For the fifth, you must get a meter and a half of suede, fold it a little at the end and put a ball in it, one that is very fair. If it doesn’t fit quite right, just put a little glue on it and hang some kind of elongated pendant on it with a washer. In our case we have used pens that fit very well.
two.- If you prefer, you can proceed to cut a little the excess material. Remember that you have to do this at both ends. And that’s it, all you have to do is put it on as you like.
