Electric Cable Choker Necklace

Electric Cable Choker Necklace

This electric cable choker necklace took me 30 minutes to make. Super easy – as is everything on this blog. I’ve had this piece of Amazonite for a while and been wanting to do something fun with it. We had a piece of black electric cord lying about. And since this blog is about up-cycling and recycling and making and anything but buying  . . . . .  I re-purposed it. Here’s how I made it.

You need: –

  • electric cable
  • a finding that can fit the width of your cable
  • two-part adhesive or really strong glue
  • a stone or something to attach to your choker – or wear it plain
  • O-rings or something that can attach your stone to your choker
  • cable or wire cutters

You do: –

Measure the space your finding or fastener will use. And measure the cable around your neck to see how long or short you would like it to be.

 

DIY black cable choker
Your findings/clasp/ clasp needs to be big enough for the cable

Make a note of the size. Deduct the size of your fastener or clasp.

Mix your adhesive if two part and glue to each end. Check it attaches nicely and doesn’t cause your cable to twist. Allow to dry.

Attach O-rings to stone and attache to your choker. And that’s it!

Look for the Galleries pages where you can find other DIYs where I used fine electric cable. And wire. And old curtains.

See you next week.
