I am not a jewelry designer nor do I have the skills even near to their talent, but when I saw a suede choker that I absolutely adored tagged at $60 I just couldn’t justify spending that much on basically a string and some charms! So… I took a shot at trying it myself and it was so easy that I can’t help but share with you!
What you will need:
1.Faux Suede Cord (Walmart)
2.Two Charms (Hobby Lobby)
3.Beads (Hobby Lobby)
4.Scissors (Hobby Lobby)
5.Glue Gun (Hobby Lobby)
Step 1: Decide on the length of the necklace you want. I wanted mine to wrap around my neck twice and hang pretty long so it ended up being 75″. Once you decide on the length, cut the cord 2 inches longer than that so you have room to tie the beads and charms on.
Step 2: Take one end of the string and pull your beads and charm through.
Step 3: Tie one knot where the charm meets the string.
Step 4: Glue right above the knot so that beads will stay secure when you slide them down.
Step 5: Pull beads down so that they are touching the charm
Step 6: Cut the extra piece of cord. **cut as close to the bead as possible to get a clean edge.
Step 7: Repeat steps 1-6 on the other end
And…VOILA! You’ve got yourself a faux suede choker necklace! Easy right?!
With this much ease I will definitely be making more!
Will you?! 🙂
