Handmade Choker!

Did all of us wear it in elementary school? Though this summer it was quite hard to see a girl without a choker around her neck. Summer of chokers, hah! Accordingly, their prices jumped up almost to heaven. But should we pay for the beauty that we can make ourselves at home? In my tutorial I will show how we can get this '90s style accessory in a very easy, fast and inexpensive way.

Classic ’90s Stretch Choker

That is the thing I loved so much in school! That time I didn't know that choker is so easy to make. 

You need:

  1. 1 yard stretch cord (better to have extra)
  2. scissors
  3. tape

How to do this:

  1. Fold the cord in half. Attach a loop on a flat surface.
  2. Take the piece on the left and loop it over the right piece. Tuck the left piece through the opening and pull until the loop is at the top.
  3. Take the piece on the right and turn it over the left piece. Tuck the right piece through the opening and pull until the loop is at the top.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3. You should have a chain that’s about 9-11 inches long.
  5. Remove the bracket. Tie the loose ends. Cut the excess ends of the cord.

Done! Wear it proudly! :)

Simple Velvet Ribbon Choker

You'll wonder how simple it is! It takes only a few minutes and some usual materials. It looks really graceful and adds a little romance to your everyday style.

You need:

  1. ½ yard of velvet ribbon (½ inch thick)
  2. ½ inch jewelry fasteners
  3. pliers

How to do this:

  1. Fix a jewelry fastener on each end of the ribbon by means of pliers. 
  2. Wrap around your neck and make a bow.

Done! Sooo beautiful!

Suede Wrap Choker

It's still so unbelievably easy! A little boho on your neck never hurts, you know.

You need:

  1. ½ yard of suede lace
  2. 2 jewelry clasps
  3. 2 pendants
  4. pliers

How to do this:

  1. Fix a jewelry clasp on each end of the suede lace by means of pliers.
  2. Fix a pendant on each of the clasps.
  3. Wrap around your neck like a scarf, with the two long ends hanging down.
  4. Tie the long ends together.

Now be a real '90s queen! :)
