Downton Abbey Inspired Crystal Choker

from Belle Jewelry Designs
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Downton Abbey Inspired Crystal Choker
Downton Abbey Inspired Crystal Choker
Downton Abbey Inspired Crystal Choker

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Tie a knot
  • Thread a needle
  • Not much else!

Pattern Description:

I was asked to design a choker inspired by the jewelry worn on the PBS show Downton Abbey just in time for season 3! The focal point of the necklace is made using a modified right angle weave (RAW) stitch. This necklace can be completed within 2 hours. It's not a difficult design. GREAT for a beginner.

The necklace can be lengthened by adding more 8/0 seed beads to the chain. The materials list above (and provided with the kit) will adequately provide for a 16" to 18" choker.

Special Notice
When you buy this pattern, you are now entitled to make this necklace. Please--do not distribute, lend, teach, copy, or sell my pattern. It's not good for you. You will have trouble sleeping and terrible headaches (I'm talking migraines--not worth it). Mass production (like a factory) is not permitted. If you sell the necklace please give credit to the designer--ME!
