Many of the popular trends from last century are starting to make their way back into the fashion world.  One of which is chokers, which have started to appear in stores and sold by various brands across the board.  You may want a specific choker that you can’t find online or in stores, so… why not make it yourself?

If you like simple, create your own ribbon choker.  This is probably the easiest way to make your own necklace!  Just purchase some black ribbon, whatever you prefer, and measure its length to fit around your neck.  You can either make it a little longer and tie it behind your neck or you can fasten it together with a mini safety pin.  How quick and easy is that?Chelsea Crockett - Chokers

For me, I like to add a little more to my choker such as beads or dangles.  You can find these at most craft stores!  Pick out your initial, your favorite animal, etc.  Customize it as you wish!  You’ll also need a thin black ribbon or thick string to slide your bead onto.  If you want a super simple way to keep it on, just tie a small bow behind your neck.  Your hair will most likely cover it!

Which are you going to make?  Tell me how it turns out in the comments below!

Brands that have a meaning behind them are higher in my book than brands or companies that don’t. Alex and Ani is a jewelry brand that doesn’t sell accessories for the sole purpose of looking fashionable. Although their necklaces and bracelets are totally stylish, they each have a certain meaning behind them that I wanted to tell you a little about!

To start off, their bangles are definitely the brand’s main attraction. Their original style has a main symbol that dangles from an either gold or silver bracelet. Each symbol represents three things, such as love, friendship, loyalty, adventure, etc. For example, the Path of Life Charm Bangle represents strength, motivation, and knowledge. Another one of my favorites is the Sailboat Charm Bangle which represents courage, adventure, and transition. Each bracelet comes with a little card to remember the meaning behind it!Chelsea Crockett - Alex and Ani Bangles

Apart from bangles, they also have bracelets, necklaces, earrings, scarves, handbags, etc. Since you all know I am very religious, I love the jewelry that has a cross on it. You can find one on a necklace, a bangle, or a bracelet to not only represent Christ, but life, union, and immortality as well.

Alex and Ani has an awesome meaning and concept behind them. They make for perfect gifts considering each piece is usually around $30. I highly suggest you check them out. You won’t regret it!

Throwing on a bright colored bracelet can spice up any outfit!  Depending on what you’re wearing, finding the right style and color of bracelet can be tricky.  Luckily, there’s a way to customize your own bangles!

What you’ll need:

  • plain metal bangles
  • super glue
  • colorful embroidery floss
  • charms with an open and close clasp (optional)
  • plain rings with an open and close clasp (optional)

Start by placing a small dab of glue on the outside of the bangle and gluing the end of the floss to it.  Once the glue dries and the floss is in place, begin wrapping the Chelsea Crockett- diy colorful banglefloss tightly around the bangle.  If you feel the need to do so, you can add small dots of glue throughout the bangle to ensure that the floss will stay in place.  Once the entire bangle is covered in bright, beautiful colors, secure the floss by cutting it and gluing the end with one more dab of super glue.

If you want to continue on and add charms to your bangle, then add as many charms and plain rings as you want!  Since a bangle cannot be opened up, it’s important for the charms to have a way to be opened and placed on the bracelet.  Try making an array of these bangles to wear up your arm.  It’s the perfect way to add a little color to any outfit!

Have fun!

Chelsea
