I have been working on trying to put together a beaded choker using our Bead Soup combinations of beads and I think I finally succeeded.
Here we put together a combination of greens and crystals, including some delicate Crystal AB leaves, and Green AB daggers and mixed them all in a swirl of beads, with a green metallic thread to make a choker length.
We got a stretchy 12" out of one spool of thread. If you prefer your chokers to be not quite so...well, choking, check with us about the availability of a second spool of thread. If we have your color, we will be glad to arrange to add it to your order.
The current clasp that we have for this is a tube-and-bar type clasp that will help hold the rectangular shape while one end simply slides into the other end. Your clasp might be the same or we might include another which will work well as a necklace clasp
As far as the beads and threads for this necklace, we are offering other colors besides the set you see on my friend's neck in the photo here, which we are calling Greens.
The Purples will have basically the colors of the Purple Bead Soup bracelet. If you have a preference on thread color, let us know. Otherwise we will pick randomly either purple or silver.
The Crystals Plus is made with the same type of mix as in its Bead Soup Bracelet "sister" and silver thread as well (or feel free to tell us another color thread you'd prefer).
The Blues will come with blue or silver thread, our choice unless you tell us
If there is another color combination you'd like to try then select the "Customized" version and make sure to let us know your wishes. Use the "Comments" section on the order form when you check out. We'll do our best to put together what appeals....
The kit will contain the the beads, the clasp, and thread (either silk or the polyester metallic).
The pattern is virtually the same as for all of the Bead Soup and Bead Stew Bracelets -- you have the option to get it or not via the drop-down menu.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern. We offer three options. I know some of you might already have made bracelets from us that are made along the same lines, the only real changes being the beads and the colors and sizing. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."
If you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
