The Velvet Choker

Full choker

As much as I hope you can’t stop wearing your first choker, here is another one to add to the mix. Again everything is under $10.

Supplies

Here is what you need:

  • A 50cm (20 in) piece of velvet
  • Scissors
  • A large gold jump ring (I took mine off of an old key ring).
  • Needle & thread
  • Jewelry closures

Let’s get started:

Cut your velvet in to two equal pieces.

Cut

Place the hoop on top of the opening of the velvet ribbon.

Pull the ribbon through and sew a couple of stitches so the ribbon is attached.

Sew Ring

Do the same thing to the other side. It should look like this when you are done with this step.

Next I folded over the ends about a centimeter and sewed it so the ends would be a little thicker for the clasps.

Finish Sew

Add the clasps on the end. Mine were pretty simple so I just used good tweezers.

Voila! Now you have two badass chokers to style as you please.
