I am so excited it has been a long time since I have been in a swap!

So do people have examples or links to interesting chokers? I do best with lots of visual inspiration. I do have one I have been planing to make (just got the book with the pattern today), but I would love to see more. I also want to make sure we are on the same page with the term choker, it being just any tight/close fitting necklace? Anything from a simple band to an elaborate three inch wide collar?

Sent mine. You can expect me bombing you with stupid questions like What should i put in here? What does this mean?
Please, understand, this is my first swap  Kiss

Ask away, that's why I'm here. Thanks for joining too, that's a compliment considering you've been on the site since 2006. x
Well, shouldn't we put our neck circumference? I wouldn't like my choker to literally choke someone.

absolutely, I would like you to do that when you get matched to your partner that way you can pm eachother with as many extra details as needed.

re. hoxierice, welcome and thanks for joining the swap Smiley your descriptions are accurate but keep in mind if you get matched with Nutella or someone who prefers a looser choker, that a choker can also rest on the collar bone in a none too tight fashion.
