Upon recently discovering the cheaper and more personalized way to participate in the growing choker fad, I may never buy a choker via retail again.

There are a few ways to go about this DIY, but here’s my version. Find a fabric that fits your personal style, no matter the type — this step by step should work with most!
First, you need to acquire the following materials and tools;

  • Curved tip pliers
  • Scissors
  • Jewelry clasps (gold or silver)
  • Fabric of choice

Cut the fabric to your desired width and measure so that the ends just barely meet around your neck when cut.

Attach your jewelry clasp to each end of the choker, fastening securely with the pliers.


Try selecting a clasp that best fits to the width of your chosen material. Here I am using a 1 inch clasp for the velvet.

Finally, add either a single link or a small chain to one side and a classic lobster clasp to the other.


Don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of fabrics and materials such as denims, velvets, or satins.


Here are some choker-inspired looks I put together in anticipation of New Year’s Eve.
