Anya Kase Rocks! Not only did she have 2 partners...but she also made each of us 2 chokers!!!  Grin

Somebody give that girl an award or something!

Here is my sparkly pink gorgeousness with matching earrings:


And even more sparkly pink gorgeousness...also with earrings:

I had to post detail of this one...it is just stunning!

Thank you so much Anya Kase! These are going to be worn alot! They're so fancy, yet I can still wear jeans with them & they are the perfect color for my skin tone...just lovely!

I'm also jealous of grannystylee's crochet skills & that beautiful beaded choker.
Love clara o hara's fun applique chokers...are they made of felt? Too cool! Also, coco-mac...that lacy pirate number....grrrrr! Love it to pieces! Wink

my gooossshh! I was unexpectedly gone for a week, without a computer, and come back to see some of the most beautiful chokers! ...I personally have not sent mine yet because of some technical difficulties... (badddd alysssaa Lips sealed) BUT dang! My swap anxiety is KILLER now  Embarrassed

All this intricate weavings, and crocheting... wow, you ladies have really inspired me to learn some new techniques!

I adore the green choker, nasty_wench, it's beautiful! And altair, that necklace is truly one of a kind, it's SO intriguing, and I love the colors! Anya Kase, The second pink choker IS absolutely stunning! I wish I could see more detail, it looks so amazing! And hoxierice, wow. That's beautiful, and REALLLY makes me want to learn to crochet, or knit, or however you did that!  Tongue

GOOD JOB SO FAR LADIES! I'm super impressed at this supposedly simple swap! Cheesy

Thanks you guys! And it looks good on you frosty, it looks tight and not bubbly like I worried it would.

I modified the pattern from two patterns. The top part (the beads and open work) came from Knit and Crochet with Beads the "Harry Winston..." necklace. The bottom diamond part came from this chart.

You also have to know a bit about working with beads, to add the drop beads you have to figure out how many single beads you need before you come to the "different" bead. That is what I did.

Its not tight fitting at all.  It kind of molds around my neck.  Very comfortable!!

All these chokers are GORGOUS!!!  And they are all so different!

 I'm so glad my partners (Coldbrains and Isewcute)  Loved theirs!  I always stress over that kind of thing.  Thanks for all the kudos! 


I am sad to say on my recent trip to the land of Disney I have lost my camera. Cry  So I asked ISewCute to post pictures of what she sent me.  They are awesome and I have not taken the beaded one off since I got it.  Okay so that's not true.  I took it off long enough to wear the Wire one! Grin  She did a beautiful job, I love them. Grin
