Hi Alan,
Great chokers, I especially like the black one, the larger wraps in the middle look nice with the black beads.
I have never done that style of neckpiece, I prefer fancy chain. But if you don't mind telling, how many feet of wire does it take to do one of those?

Thanks Jenna and Don ....as for how much silver well it takes about 12 feet of 20 gauge for the wrap and about 16 inches of 14 gauge for the mandrel plus some for the clasp in all about 43 to 50 grams of silver.

Ooooooh pretty! I don't wear chokers but sure like the way they look on others (short fat neck LOL). Those are very nice, Alan!

Thanks Charlee all you have to do is get one a bit longer.....and maybe with a dangle....

Alan...how long are your chokers? I'm trying to figure out an "average" size. I have a really hard time guessing, I have tiny wrists and neck.

Alan,

Beautiful work :) I'm kind of a novice at this wire stuff yet (blush)... could you post how you finished them and attached the clasps?

Denise they are about 16 inches of wire before bending the ends....this fits most people except people with big necks....

Susie thanks they are finshed with twisted wire around the main wire then the ends are looped to hold the clasp...its a swan clasp that my wife makes...
