Crystal Choker

April 27, 2017

Timeless & sexy, but not exactly like the origins…
Atemporal & sexy, pero no exactamente como sus orígenes…

I guess you know by now the origins of the choker. This necklace goes back to the old civilizations so it has never been exactly out of style. I find chokers very cool, since it is a trend which was in vogue already when I was a teenager, it’s funny to have it back again and even more popular with many fashion bloggers or famous artists whom also wear them because of the same reason: they are cool, timeless and sexy.

They are made of many different materials: pearls, gold, fabric, etc. It’s only you the one in charge to find your favourite one. There are not two chokers alike, the styles are infinite. 

 I was looking for a pink choker and since I didn’t find any I liked, I decided to create one. The materials are super easy. At the end it’s all about your requirements in your choker.

 

You just need to let your imagination fly and browse around your home and see if you have some of the materials and get in to work.

This choker didn’t take me long. I simply cut the length of the band according to the size of my neck, I had some pink crystals which I put some glue, and after I sew them to secure them even more.
Then voilá! My new DIY choker with crystals!! Try it yourself!
Cheers!

Supongo que ya conoces los orígenes de la gargantilla. Este collar se remonta a las antiguas civilizaciones por lo que nunca ha estado exactamente fuera de estilo. Encuentro los chokers muy cool, ya que es una tendencia que ya estaba en boga cuando yo era una adolescente, es divertido tenerla de nuevo y aún más popular con muchas bloggers de moda o artistas famosas que también las usan por la misma razó : Son geniales, intemporales y sexy.

Están hechas de muchos materiales diferentes: perlas, oro, tela, etc. Sólo tú eres la encargada de encontrar tu favorita. No hay dos chokers iguales, los estilos son infinitos.

Yo estaba buscando una choker rosa y ya que no encontré ninguna que me gustó, decidí crear una. Los materiales son super fáciles. Al final se trata de tus necesidades en tu gargantilla. Sólo tienes que dejar volar tu imaginación y buscar por tu casa y ver si tienes algunos de los materiales y ponerte manos a la obra. Esta gargantilla no me llevó mucho tiempo. Simplemente corté la longitud de la banda de acuerdo al tamaño de mi cuello, tenía unos cristales de color rosa que puse un poco de pegamento, y después los cosí para asegurarlos aún más.

Entonces voilá! ¡Mi nueva DIY gargantilla con cristales!!!

¡Salud!
