DIY Pearl Choker


Hey Lovelies, so recently I've been loving chokers, I'm constantly wearing them because I find they are such a cute accessory. Chokers can either be pricey or inexpensive, but all in all, they are such a simple, yet cute way to add to an outfit. So not long ago, I thought to myself, why not make one? It's pretty inexpensive to do so, and so I did. I'm honestly loving the end result, so I decided to let you know just how I made it so you could create one (or multiple) as well. 

What you will need:


Steps to create:

1) Start off by measuring out the length of chain you'll need. To measure, take the necklace chain and wrap it around your neck and then add an extra 1/2 inch to what is wrapped around your neck.

2) Using pliers cut off the excess chain that isn't wrapped around your neck, (if any). You should end up with the piece of chain that was wrapped around your neck to start creating your choker.

3) Now, using pliers open and attach one hoop (jump ring) to one end of your chain, and close the hoop off.


4) At this point, start applying the pearl beads, looping them through the end of the chain without the jump ring present.



5) Once you've finished applying beads to the chain, repeat step three on the other end where no jump ring is present. However, before closing the hoop (jump ring) attach the clasp to the end and then close off the hoop.


6) Rock your new choker! Now, you can wear and style it however you'd like!


If you create this, I would so love to see the way you styled them! Comment down below, or post a picture on Instagram with the #DIYfashion so I could check out your creations!
