Hello again friends, I write to you before I start my frantic last minute packing to Paris but I wanted to share with you a last minute easy gold choker tassel that I threw together recently – this Gold Choker with Tassel requires very little to no crafting skills and will surely not disappoint!

If you followed my instagram last week, you will know I had the BEST time playing designer/model/blogger professional with some of my favorite sewing profesionals in the sewing community (here, here, here)! They are amazing and sweet and incredibly inspiring and I will blog to you about it as soon as life settles down a bit because HELLO, I am going to Paris and time will not stand still. This McCall’s top is one of the looks I made for the McCall Style Show, I used a silk habotai from Dharma Trading, Co. They sell some affordable silk by the yard, mostly for tie-dying but I love to use for both tie dye and non tie dye looks! The pattern is an amazing top and 2017 is the “Year of the Sleeve” – this pattern offers FIVE different sleeve options… IT IS AWESOME. I love this top and I cannot wait to bring it with me – it’s so fun to wear! We leave tomorrow and I am freaking out!

Before I really start freaking out, let me share with you this amazing Gold Choker!!

You will need the following:

  • Gold/Brass Hoop by Darice,
  • Black Tassel from my local Joann Fabric store,
    ** BOTH of these items, hoop + tassel, are found inside my local Joann store but not available online**
  • Heavy Duty wire cutters found at your local hardware store.
  • Sand paper

Direction:

  1. Take your pliers and make a cut through the seam of the brass hoop. If you inspect the hoop closely, you will find a seam where the end ends of the hoop met at one time. That is the most vulnerable part of your hoop. It will take a little muscle, but you need to clip that open so you can fit your neck through the hole AND of course attaching the tassel to your hoop. like I mentioned earlier, the hoop is hard to find onine. I have no clue what to call it or what people use it for, but here is what it looks like (below), I have found this hoop in the jewelry sections, quilting sections, and crafting sections at my local stores. Good luck finding it – sorry friends

  2. After you cut the hoop, sand the edges with sandpaper. The edges of the cut hoop can be a little sharp- be careful!
  3. I am working on a video to share with you about how to attach the tassel, I looped it around the hoop until it was on tight.
    Nothing fancy as far as looping it on – that’s what Paris is for, ha!

There you have it, give this Easy Gold Choker Tutorial a try and let me know what you think!! I like that I can widen the hoop or tighten it a little more around my neck – no problem. Not too tight – breathing is the key to survival.

Thanks for visiting my little corner on the web, have a glamorous day!
