The Choker: Part 3
The most recent acquisition, and the closest thing I own now to an actual dog-collar. This is in-your-face, bondage-y, sexual, even. I cannot bring my ear to meet my shoulder to use my cell phone without my hands while wearing it. What is it about a choker, exactly, that feels so fresh to me at this moment? My new purchases seem only to inch upward towards my throat, becoming gradually more aggressive. The gentle navel-grazers of my past hang untouched in my closet. There is something liberating about wearing a choker - no sway of a pendant as you walk, no long chains to untangle. It is a look that is inescapably present. A choker will not get lost in the folds of your shirt, as it almost becomes part of your own neck, a body part that is simultaneously vulnerable and commanding. Complimenting a friend’s choker recently (tight, crystal, 90s prom-style), I posed the question of the choker’s appeal to her. “I don’t know,” she said. “It kind of forces people to look at it, I guess.”

The Choker: Part 2
A birthday gift from my sister. I was confused by this piece at first - two different types of chains, woven together by two different kinds of threads. What color is that thread, exactly? Olive, mushroom? This won’t go with anything I wear, I thought. Holding it up to candlelight at the dinner table with my family failed to answer the question. What do the threads have to do with all those chains, how are they related? My sister told me I could return it if I didn’t like it. Somehow though, the collar was on my neck the following day, going to work with me, and I saw that this necklace works precisely because the threads and the chains don’t go together. A necklace that could easily venture into aggressive, dog-collar territory is now softened by the presence of the earth-toned weavings throughout. Your work-appropriate dog-collar, your most whimsical choke-chain, is found here.
