Apparently I have been living in oblivion. Namely, my daughter informed my ignorant self that chokers have been quite popular for quite a while now. And that discovery - on my part that is - happened when she found out we have a huge box of velvet ribbons in all colors imaginable. It happened with an ecstatic and joyful scream.
I fondly remember the '90s when chokers were in fashion, I remember making them out of leather and fabric. And because for a person in love with the Victorian era, chokers actually never go out of style I decided to make some.
If you want to make one yourself, all you need is a ribbon long enough to tie it behind your neck, which is the current preferred style, or try a more complicated version where you cut a short ribbon, just enough to get it around your neck, attach clamps on both sides of the ribbon and a lobster clip for closure. You can attach a charm or a pendant to it for added glam.
