Display and chokers! The green one is an older one, the others new. Bought the white crochet from the craft store-they were too big for bracelets and too small for chokers. They came with the fabric ends encased in ribbon clips, and a little bit of silver chain and a clasp. I added more chain to make them choker size, and put pendants on each one. Fan, heart, mother of pearl bead with dangle, odd fancy silver dangly earrings. At the last minute I realized I had no display. Took an old stretch velvet pullover, cut off the sleeve. Pulled it over a roll of paper towels. Knotted each end, stuffed them inside. Had a couple of ceramic drawer pulls I bought on clearance for 50 cents, pushed those in to make sure the sleeve ends stayed tucked inside and to make it look neater. I didn't even have to use pins to hold the chokers in place-the paper towel roll compressed a bit when I fastened the chokers, and uncompressed after, if that makes sense.

Your chokers are very pretty.  Your display is ingenious.

I'm always looking for unique ways to keep my jewelry when I'm not wearing it... and this is clever. I also think your chokers are so lovely & feminine!  Wink
