Modern Choker DIY

Happy Memorial Day! Ironically, I made a black choker lol

This weekend, I wanted to explore a new method of putting together these chokers. I really wanted it to have a simplistic, modern feel so I used a black suede cord instead of the usual brown.

Materials:

  • Black suede cord (around 1.5 inches larger than my neck size)
  • 2 Beads
  • 1 Headpins
  • 1 Spring Ring Clasps
  • 2 Cord end caps

After cutting out the suede cord, I bent one of the points on the end caps so it’s flat (Note: I’m still working on more asetically pleasing version but this will work for now lol). Then, I attached one of the caps to one end and on the other, I folded the cord into a loop before attaching the end cap. On the end with the loop, I made sure that it was loose enough for me to pull the cord through; this way I could adjust the choker when needed.

Now that the cord part was finished, all I had left was to insert the beads into the head pin, create a loop, and cut off the excess. I then hooked the bead on the cord and my choker was finished.

I ended up wearing this out this weekend and I felt pretty accomplished because this method makes it a lot easier to adjust when it’s too tight. On a side note, the 3 day weekend was very relaxing and I had enough time to work on another DIY project that I’ve been meaning to try for a while now.

How was your weekend?
