Choker Completed...

This feels so good to have it finished and ready for an event quickly coming up.
I handstitched this choker out of black lace and black grosgrain ribbon. The red rose braid is also handstitched on the black grosgrain. This choker ties with black velvet ribbons. I love how this lace really spreads out around the neck.
Then I made a fabric envelope to keep the choker in. It ties with the same black velvet ribbon as the choker.
I am so pleased with how this project turned out and the fact that it is ready for giving. I made it for a raffle which is coming up in early May. Proceeds not to benefit me but a fraternal organization.
I just know this will look amazing on the lovely lady who's number is drawn.

  12. Oh my gosh, they are both so beautiful!! All the lucky lady will need will be a simple black dress with a low round neckline to show off this gorgeous creation!

    Hmmmm....or maybe a siren red dress! ;-)
