Here's how it came out. I'm going to make another! The first is for a friend. The design was IDEAL for her because the choker is:

GREEN - a color which represents RENEWEL, new LIFE, rebirth, changes...all things that are possible for her (and all of us). A good thing to remember on one's birthday (this is for her birthday)!

INTRICATE - because she is a complex, interesting, deeply valuable woman

FACETED, FIRE-POLISHED CRYSTALS - because she is a multi-faceted women with wide-ranging abilities and many unique and amazing characteristics. She, too has survived many "fires" and have come out GLISTENING, despite the heat.

SILVER (plated)clasp and adjutable chain - precious metal for a PRECIOUS person

DOURLBE INTERCONNECTED HOOPS- to represent how profoundly intertwined are the lives of our community, and how she is such an integral and vital part of that.

I'm going to try to make another now! Not sure if I have quite enough crystals, so may be making a Michael's run during the football game. LOL!

Thanks again for your help!

Gorgeous - definitely saving this for my to-do list.  Thanks for the great instructions.  It definitely looks like something my neice and a couple of friends will like.  Also, what about making a short portion of it, turning it on the side and making it a focal point of necklace too - get what I mean?

Yes, how clever! Almost using it like the "drop" or the charm piece of a necklace, you mean? Neat idea!

I started working on another one, I loved this pattern so much! I'm not sure if I like it two-toned or not, but it's growing on me.

Thanks again for the GREAT instructions!

I was one of the posters that commented on the necklace in the earring post.  Thank you so much for the tutorial.  The necklace and earring set are truly beautiful Smiley!

Thank you very much for sharing this, I think it is very beautiful.  I made a choker, bracellette, and earing set with your wonderful, easy to understand directions.  I wore the bracellette out to dinner yesterday and was complimented over half a dozen times.  Thanks a million for sharing!!  In my crystal ball, I see the future..... Roll Eyes  everyone is getting a set for b-days and xmas next yr.  OH did I say thank you???

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.
