My love of choker necklaces started when I was a teenager. Back in the 90s, everyone was wearing those crazy floppy hats (like Blossom!) and velvet ribbon choker necklaces (like in The Craft!). I had a gorgeous one with intricate beading all over it. It was my favourite accessory, so naturally I hardly ever wore it - it was rare that an occasion felt “special” enough for it.
A couple of years ago I remembered about my lovely choker (I have no idea what happened to it in the end - I guess if you don’t use it you lose it!), and it inspired me to add velvet ribbon chokers to my jewelry collection in my Etsy store. I have quite a variety of them now, and I’m adding more all the time. The most popular design has been the Holly King choker, with it’s oversized holly leaf focal charm on a dark forest green ribbon. I particularly love the Orchid Choker. And I’m currently waiting on some new shades of ribbon for some new designs I have in mind for Spring/Summer. I’m thinking Sunflowers, Fairies, Hummingbirds and more!
Which is your favourite of my Choker designs?
