We found this amazing diy for cord chokers, they are so simple to make and are great for layering.

What you need: (most of the items can be found on our website)

  • waxed or leather cord
  • beads and charms
  • jump rings
  • lobster claw
  • pliers
  • tape measure
  • end cord fasteners (optional)
  • extender chain (optional)
  1. First, measure around your neck to determine what size you need the choker to be and cut a length of cord approx 2" longer to allow for knots. Most chokers are 12" long with a 3" extender chain.
  2. Take one end of your cord and knot it onto a jump ring.
  3. Thread on any beads and charms, then knot the other end of the word fastener for a more finished look.
  4. Trim off any excess cord from the knots and if you wish to add a small blob of glue to secure - this may also help to prevent fraying over time.
  5. Use pliers to attach a lobster clasp onto one of the jump rings. If you want to add an extender chain, attach this to the other jump ring and your choker is ready to wear!
