Crafty jewelry: Tassel Earrings tutorial

Jewelry making, Other crafts  |  September 7th 2011  |  0 Comment

 

Materials:
Embroidery thread or cording
Earring hooks
Jewelry rings
Gold or silver cord
Clear nail polish

Directions:
1. Cut the thread or cord in 8-10″ lengths (depending on how dangle-y you want the tassel). For 5″ dangle, cut 10″. For 4.5″ dangle, cut 9″. You get the idea.

2. Create two stacks with 25-35 pieces of cut cord or thread (or even more depending on how bulky you want the tassel).

3. Slide each stack through a jewelry ring, folding in half. Attach ring to earring hooks.

4. Use gold or silver cord to wrap the tassels at various points in the strand. I secured my wraps using clear nail polish – a perfect adhesive if I do say so myself.

5. Now, literally dangle from your ears!

And here’s the version with embroidery thread and two wraps of gold:
