I've been on a creating spree! I have so many ideas and have been trying to make as many as I can before they disappear from my brain! I just finished up a few more new pendant designs. They are already available in my Etsy shop.
My oldest daughter recently bought one of those "tattoo" bracelets at Hot Topic. When I saw it, I was thinking... wait... I used to wear a choker like that! I can't believe they are back in style! I was also thinking... I CAN MAKE THAT! So, I looked for tutorials online and found a bunch. Even though the one she bought felt like it was made with some type of fishing line, the tutorials I found all used Stretch Magic. I couldn't find it in craft stores, they were all out of black everywhere I looked, so I ended up buying some from Jo-Ann Fabric online. I used black and gold in 1mm, but they have all different thicknesses and colors.
I ended up liking this tutorial the best. The only thing I did differently was, instead of cutting two strands of string, I cut one (6 times the length around my neck), folded it in half, and knotted a loop at the end. This made it easier to tie it together when finished. There are lots of ways to finish these off though...
Here's my youngest wearing a gold tattoo choker and a vampire teeth pendant (also made by me and soon to be added to my Etsy shop!!!).
