In the spirit of multipurposing that our “grow your business” project often mentions, we’d like to report on some great uses people have recently invented for Rings & Things’ chokers.
Another take by Tish on the wrapped-choker idea:
Dawno combined an inspiration from abstract artist Piet Mondrian with choker wrapping:
Melanie at Earthenwood Studios found our choker blank provided a good structure to express her ongoing steampunk inspiration:
At her “A Bead A Day” blog, Lisa wrapped the entire choker form and added a pendant and coordinating bead accents:
In a similar vein, Tish went for a softer feel, designing a loosely ribbon-wrapped choker:
(Tish provides a full, excellent tutorial on making this one!)
How about wrapping wire on some other element of your design? Dawno beaded the choker form itself, but wrapped the great dangles in this design:
And Lisa made a stunning wire-wrapped focal piece in this choker design:
Another wire-wrapping idea for a focal is this stunning bit of sculpture by Dawno:
Somewhat more minimal wire work is involved in the hammered tendrils dangling from this “Tiger, Tiger Burning Bright” choker by Margot Potter, a.k.a. The Impatient Crafter:
