Stretch Choker

What a lovely neck, don't you think? lol. This is my oldest daughter Emma-Jeanne. She is modeling this choker for me so I could get a decent picture and really show you what it looks like. It really suits her. :)
I used three rectangular red glass beads as the focal point, silver spacers at the edges and black glass seed beads in between. I did this on two strands of stretch magic so that I could make it stronger and so I could make it wider by expanding it after the focal point. I did this simply by putting beads on each of the strands and combining the strands again through one row before the toggle.

I used more of the black seed beads and pewter spacers, and added some larger clear and black glass beads. I put a toggle clasp at the back to make it easy to put on but the stretch magic was to make it more comfortable.

Let me know what you think!!

This is brilliant - i have always wanted to do a stretch choker but didn't put this together in my mind - you definately have a way with colour too - peace
