DIY: Crystal Chain Choker

 photo IMG_0007_zpsq3pnqaye.png
I've been seeing this popular Crystal Chain Choker all over social media and thought it was such a beautiful statement necklace whether you are dressing up or dressing down with just a simple t-shirt. I decided to make my own version because I was not able to find it anywhere at my local malls or wasn't sure if it's still available online. I hope you all enjoy this simple and easy tutorial and incase you guys are wondering, I bought most of my materials from Michael's.

I measured the length around my neck to 11 1/2 inches long. For the middle strand I measured it to 4 1/4 inches long, both of the end strands are 4 inches, and the pendant strand is 1 1/2 inches long. (Measurements and sizes can be different so measure it to your liking.)

Cut the neck strand in half, use the round nose pliers and flat nose pliers to attach the chains onto the brass ring. Use the flat nose plier to secured the chains tightly.
