I already had all the materials at home for the tutorial but I'll be sure to provide some links for you guys in case you want to make this yourself. I love how it's a necklace that highlights the fastener, its often not a part of the necklace that is celebrated but hidden. I always had the issue of the clasp falling to the front of all my necklaces anyways from body movements throughout a day, and would constantly be readjusting. This choker style is perfect to combat those annoyances as the clasp is already in the front! I think it also speaks to a more edgy look for the people who want to try a different choker look to the classic black velvet.
I made both my version, which is a wrap around style choker, and also the same shorter length over-sized clasp choker as seen on Jenn Im.
Time this will take you: like............all of 2 minutes to make, heck it took way longer for me to write this blog post than to make the two necklaces.
What you'll need:
- Thin chain (here)
- 13mm oversized clasp (here)
- 3mm jump rings (x2)
- 6mm jump ring (x1)
- pliers & cutter
- Cut the chain to desired length, I recommend 11.5" for the short one and 25" for the long one. But for your ideal length just take the chain and wrap it around your neck.
- Take the 3mm jump-rings and attach the clasp on one end and the 6mm jump-ring to the other end.
And it's really that easy! Also a nice gift for any friends or family coming up this holiday season. You can make it extra luxe by using sterling silver of 14k filled hardware.
