Crystal & Thread Choker DIY


Today I want to share this crystal and thread choker, which I made recently.

Most of the crystal pieces I make use bold colours, but this time I wanted to go for something a that incorporated cool tones, for more of a wintry look.

This is a really simple DIY and you don't need any jewellery-making skills to do it!

Letterzines Inspiration

This post is intended to give some inspiration for what you could include in yours.

So, starting with the most obvious...
