To decorate the neck of a woman began in ancient times. Since then, jewelry has evolved from primitive bone to complex jewelry. But fashion is impermanent, and has the property of returning. More recently, chokers or velvet mats, who first adorned the female neck in the late Middle Ages, became popular. Then they were worn by noble ladies whose portraits every artist wanted to capture. In our time, choker fell in love with the representatives of subcultures, such as "steampunk", gothic, as well as "anime otaku" and "cosplayer". And after the appearance on the fashion shows of famous couturiers, he won the hearts of celebrities. It is very simple to make such a necklace yourself, and it requires a minimum of expenses, and by showing imagination, you can create a whole collection of velvet shoes for different occasions. Materials for work:The sequence of work: First of all, we measure the volume of the neck.It must be remembered that although the choker is translated from English as a “strangler”, and it fits the skin tightly, it should be comfortable to wear it.We mark the right length with a chalk or pencil on the wrong side of the ribbon and leave 20-25 cm on each side so that the decoration can be beautifully tied on a bow.The edges should be burnt so that they do not crumble in the future. Optionally, instead of a bow, you can use a clasp, but then the decoration will lose its authenticity.The next step is to connect with lace. To add volume, a lace ribbon should be sewn with folds to make ruffles.We sweep away our blank and sew it on a typewriter or manually with a thread to match the ribbon.Take a metal base for decoration, put a cabochon on glue and wait for drying.Find the middle of the choker and mark it with a small ribbon.We sew the base there, and the Lace Choker is ready for publication.At will, the cabochon can be replaced by a cameo, a bow or a flower made of a tonal ribbon, a pendant, and a charm with chains for the Gothic version. It is recommended to wear a choker with evening and cocktail dresses with an open neck.
