one glass craft – wrap choker

Have you seen chokers popping up, like, everywhere?  Hellooo, 90’s!

There’s this one at Nasty Gal:

And honestly, the Gigi/Kendall/random other gorgeous models and starlets gang have also been sporting them which made me feel a little left out.  My favorite was that Nasty Gal one, but it seemed ridonkulous to spend $40 on a ribbon.  So, I did the easiest DIY ever.  So easy, in fact, I did not even finish my glass of wine while doing it [hence the one glass craft title].

First, your materials:

Engagement Party, Robinson House, 5037, Choker 055

-3 yds suede cording [I used about 5 feet for my necklace, but you can wrap around your neck to determine the best length for you]

-a box of cord ends

-some charm type thing

-needle-nose pliers

Engagement Party, Robinson House, 5037, Choker 061

Second, just unravel that cord and use pliers to clasp the cord ends to the end of the cord.  If it does not clasp straight, just go ahead and cute it off and try again.  You can see from my picture it happened to me!

Third, use the pliers to pry open the charm ring, insert on to cord end, and clasp back down.

If you can tell, the wine was even still cool!

Here I am modeling my necklace, no judgement!
