Peter Pan Collar Necklaces Tutorials and Inspiration

The Peter Pan collar style came from the original costume worn by the actress  Maude Adams in a 1905 stage production of Peter Pan. They've been popular ever since and lately have been a quite the trend in both fashion and jewelry designs.


The lovely pearl Peter Pan collar necklace with pearls was constructed by Prima Donna Bride following the tutorial over at Style Hive.  The examples given on Style Hive show that the design doesn't have to be bridal.  Use pearls in different colors.

For a plainer look but still stylish is the felt/flannel based Peter Pan collar by Erica over at Honestly...WTF.  You could use metal findings rather than ribbons at the back.


The ingenuity of some designers are simply inspiring.  Stylifig took a while to find just the right material for her Peter Pan collar necklace tutorial - a tapestry mat!


Fans of leather will love Elsie Larson's (A Beautiful Mess) Peter Pan collar necklace. It does dress up tops very well!


While not strictly Peter Pan because the front tips are not rounded, I still think the chain maille collar necklace by Kris over at How Do You Make This is terrific!


An exuberant Youtube instructor, Alison Faulkner, demonstrates how to make a studded Peter Pan collar necklace (video)  I must say the studded collar she modeled in her blog's tutorial post looks really sharp with different outfits like the lovely tangerine colored top below. So check it out!

Beautiful collars! I could see myself making/wearing a black pearl version of the first one.
