Black Agate Checker Cut Choker

Black Agate Checker Cut Choker

This gorgeous gothic choker is the perfect accessory to show off your darker side. 

It's always fun to incorporate big bold gems into your designs and our sterling silver gallery wire pendants make it so easy to feature them!

Step By Step Instructions

Start by cutting the black cord to your desired length - remember to take into account the extra length that the crimps and bolt ring will add.

We went for a choker look but you can make it any length you wish.

Next, thread one end of the cord into the crimp and use snipe nose pliers to squeeze the crimp together around the middle. This will secure your cord in place.

Repeat on the other end. 

Use snipe nose pliers to open the loop of the bolt ring and attach it to the loop of one of the crimp ends - this will depend on the side you prefer to have the clasp. 

Attach one of the jump rings to the loop of the other crimp.

Next set your stone in the gallery wire pendant - simply place your cabochon in the setting and use a bezel rocker to gently push the gallery wire claws over the stone to hold it in place.

Finally, use a jump ring to attach the pendant to the cord. 

Your choker is now finished!
