Hi friends, welcome back! Hope everyone had a nice weekend... mine kicked off in classic TGIF style with a (tearful) viewing of Fuller House, and culminated in utter speechlessness when Lady Gaga appeared at the Oscars wearing a pant-gown hybrid that I can only assume was made by angels in heaven... clearly an eventful weekend for me. But in other more pressing news, I have what may just be the easiest DIY of all time for you today, complete with that 90s flair you all know and love — the wrap choker. Yes, another choker. But this one was too good and easy not to share, so here we are... let's do this, shall we?
SUPPLIES: CORD OR LEATHER STRIP | JUMP RINGS | CRIMP RINGS | CHARMS | JEWELRY PLIERS
Start by measuring out how much cord or leather strip you'll need by wrapping it around your neck the way you plan on wearing it, then cut off the excess. Remember that you're going to want to wrap the cord around your neck twice to get the look, and that the dangling pieces should be quite long. Once you're happy with the length of your cord, take a jump ring and use it to join one of your charms and crimp rings together. Repeat this process with your other charm.
Once both charms are secured to your crimp rings, attach one to each end of the cord, securing in place firmly with jewelry pliers (see above). Once that's done, simply wrap the cord around your neck twice and tie the ends loosely together by your breastbone, and you're done! A wrap choker for a fraction of the price — I think Vanessa Mooney would be proud. Happy crafting, friends! xx
