Step 6: Jewelry

In this step I created a few pieces of jewelry.

Lace ribbon
Faux Leather

Steps for making Choker:

1. Measure around your neck. If you want a tight choker, like mine, make careful measurements and add 1in just in case. (it can always be cut off later!)

2. Cut the faux leather and the lace according to your measurements. Again add 1in! I made the mistake the first time of making it exact and after making my cuts and testing the cuts it ended up being to small to go around my neck and I had to cut new fabric and lace ribbon.

3. Next, hot glue the ribbon to the middle of the leather. I am unaware if you can sew the lace ribbon, but if you know that you can feel free to sew the ribbon to your fabric if you dont wish to hot glue it.

4. (optional) In this step I painted my shiny silver gears a few colors to get an idea of the color I want for my necklace. You may skip this step if you already have your details planned out.

5. Hot glue your gears or decorations on the choker as you see fitting.

6. If you wish to decorate like mine, next, decide how much of the chain you want to drape over your neck.

7. Now hot glue one end of the chain under the right gear and the other end under the middle gear. Repeat on the left side.

8. Finally, attach your key to the chain and hot glue the chain under the middle gear.

9. For closure, you can do a few ways. For one time use, you can hot glue the choker ends together once its on you. You can also add velcro to the two ends, make a fancy clasp/closure if you have the proper materials, or simply cut a slit in the ends and use some extra fabric or ribbon to tie it closed in the back.
<p>Great job! :)</p>
Wow.. so cute! <br>n.n
Oh, wow! Thanks! I didn't exactly follow your directions, but you totally inspired the cheapest corset I've ever made! I never thought of repurposing a cheapy one with new fabric. (Instead of cutting out a new one, I just duct taped the fabric over it... lazy version, but it worked.) $10 corset= happiness!
Super awesome! Totally gonna make this! :)
awesome outfit!
Thank you!! I worked so hard on it and i am so excited about the outcome. i am so glade u and everyone else thinks its as awsome as i think it is! &lt;3

Very cool costume and detailed ible. :)
Thank you, it was a lot of fun to make the costume, and just as much fun documenting it for everyone!
shure that you need a cute, stylish and pretty model to complete this costume
Nice work!<br>On a side note, &quot;Representing Long Island FTW!&quot;
Hmmm how did you know I was from Long island? lol
Could I possible be a little stalkerish. . . Just Kidding!!!<br>The Sea Wolves shirt gave it away. <br>I used to be a student at SBU I decided I didn't want to major in anything they had to offer. That was back in 2003-2005 though.<br>
OH HAHAHAHA That makes a lot of sense. That didnt even cross my mind as a way of figuring out that I lived on long island. I thought maybe somewhere on my profile it said long island new york or somthing lol<br><br>What major did you want that they didnt have?
When I started there I was going for Computer Science but it was a little too dry for me. Then I switched to Geology but couldn't see myself staring at rocks for the rest of my life. Astronomy was next but staring up at the sky was starting to hurt my neck. I tried an Anthropology / Sociology combo but didn't like either. Lastly I went the American History route but figured outside of teaching there isn't much to do with that one. That was 4 semesters but at least I managed to meet all of the DEC requirements for just about anything and most of those credits transferred with me.<br><br>I said screw it and went to Briarcliffe in Patchogue and ended up getting a degree in Networking and Internet Technology, my original love. I though Computer Science would be fun at SBU but it was all programming and none of the fun stuff.
