Designed by: Katrina
This week’s tutorial is part of the huge choker trend that continues to dominate jewellery fashion. Katrina was inspired by a different look from the all-too-familiar tattoo-style, elastic choker that’s back from the 90s goth/grunge trend. You see them everywhere right? Make your own using our pretty linen cord and delicate charms. Ready? Let's get Creative!
You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'.
- Black Braided Double Ring Linen Cord
- Charm or pendant of your choice - x 2
- Cord ends
- Findings Kit - you will need a lobster clasp, jump rings and chain
We believe that jewellery should be as individual as you are and so our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your creative imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Measure the length of ribbon tight against your neck. Minus 1 inch from the length and cut the cord.
Apply a drop of glue to the ends to make it stiffer and prevent it from fraying. Insert them into the cord ends and fold the ends over the cord using your flat nose pliers.
Attach a jumpring through the loop of each cord end. On one side add a lobster clasp. On the opposite side attach approx. 10cm of chain to the cord end with a jumpring. Connect a feather charm onto the end of the extension chain you just created.
Find the middle of your choker and attach a second feather charm through the bottom loop of the cord with a jumpring.
