Shrinking Leather Chokers that Are Too Loose

I bought 3 leather chokers with the metal hearts and circles and they have metal clip ins for adjusting. But they don't fit my neck, they are loose. Is there a way for me to shrink the leather without ruining them?

You cannot shrink these. Is there any way you could cut and use velcro to fasten behind your neck?

I would not try to mess with the leather--water can damage it and cause dry rot. So can heat.

I can't visualize the clips that you say are there for adjusting. Does it allow you to have little tails at the end that can draw the choker in so that it is smaller? Could you use the clips to draw it in and then clip off the excess so it gets to choker length again?

Is there any way to tie them off in the back with pretty loops or bows?

Back in the 60s when long leather ropes with lots of charms dangling from the bottom were the hot necklace style, we would tie them in bows behind our neck.


Hope one of these suggestions can help. Maybe a photo if they don't help, would spark an idea!
