I think I may have posted this to show someone looking for a garter in another post, but never here.  I made this earlier this year for a co-worker who got married early summer.  It is made from ecru size 20 crochet thread, and edged with small glass beads.  I've actually made two of these, for two different brides.  They chose the same pattern - an old McCalls one I found on-line.

Wow.  That's excellent.  It looks like it would be a pretty headband too.  I like headbands, call me crazy!

Here's the link to the original pattern - you're right, it would make a nice choker - perhaps with a bronzy embroidary thread, leather cord and amber beads?

That is amazing!  I've tried thread crochet and just couldn't manage...  You must have the patience of a saint!  Excellent work!
