GYPSY CHAIN CHOKER WITH PENDANT (DIY)

gypsy choker pendant diy collare

It seems that chokers are back in fashion again. I remember when I was 13 and I 
used to wear that black elastic choker you can see everywhere now, and when I forgot it who knows where, I didn't imagine that, 10 years later (10!!!), it could be fashionable again.
I am not here to share how to do that, but its classier version (after all, I grew up!).
Oh, it takes about 2 minutes to make, then you'll be free to rock it on your Friday night.

Pare che i collari siano tornati di moda. Mi ricordo quando avevo 13 anni ed indossavo
quel collarino elastico nero che ora si vede ovunque, e, quando l'ho dimenticato chissà dove,
non immaginavo che, 10 anni dopo (10!!!), sarebbe tornato di moda.
Non sono qui per dirvi come realizzare quello, ma la sua versione più fine
(dopotutto, sono cresciuta!).
Oh, vi prende giusto 2 minuti, poi sarete libere di mostrarlo fiere questa sera.

You need // Vi occorre:

- Two pliers. // Due pinze.
- About 40 cm (15,7 in) chain: measure your neck's circumference, then add about 10 cm (3,9 in). //
Circa 40 cm di catena: misurate la circonferenza del vostro collo ed aggiungete 10 cm.
- Pendant. // Ciondolo.
- A bead. // Una perlina.
- Wire. // Filo metallico.
- Snap-hook. // Moschettone.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Insert the wire into the pendant then make a ring with the pliers. // Infilate il filo
metallico el ciondolo, poi create un anellino con le pinze.


2)
Insert the bead. // Infilate la perlina.


3)
Fix the wire to one chain's extremity making a second ring. // Fissate
il filo metallico ad un'estremità della catena creando un secondo anellino.


4)
Open the other extremity of chain with the pliers, add the snap-hook, then close. // 
Aprite l'altra estremità della catena con le pinze, infilate il moschettone, poi richiudete.


5)
Voilà, done! // Voilà, fatto!
