Velvet Ribbon Choker with Beaded Trim
designed by Cheri Carlson
Skill LevelIntermediate
Time4-6 hours
Approximate Size12 1/2-13 1/2 Inches

I love the way the seed beads and bicones add a gleaming trim to this velvet ribbon choker. You could repeat the trim on the other side for a bracelet design.

Velvet ribbon makes a rich foundation for jewelry designs. The soft and luxurious fabric is a perfect option for chokers. Cheri made her velvet choker stand out by adding a seed bead and bicone fringe to the bottom edge. The beads add gleaming scallops that catch the eye and complement the ribbon perfectly. You can see more ideas for using ribbons in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
