Tassel Earrings Steps 1 2

Step 2: Cut a piece of your thread and tie it tightly around the centre of the thread bundle.

Step 3: Slide the scissors into the upper and lower grooves of the frame and cut the upper and lower thread loops open.

Step 4: Fold the tassel in half. With a new piece of thread, tie off the “head”, approx. 1 cm (3/8") below the top.

Step 5: Trim the ends of the tassel to the same length.

Step 6: Trim the ends of the threads which were used to tie the centre and the “head”.

Tassel Earrings Steps  7 8

Step 7: Knot transparent thread into the head of the tassel. Thread two beads onto both transparent thread ends, with the help of a beading needle.

Step 8: Finally, knot the transparent thread ends onto the French ear wire and trim the ends. Make the second tassel earring identically.


FINISHED! Wear them with a casual outfit or to top off a wow look – extra-long tassel earrings of thread and beads always look great!
