Jewelry Tassel Inspiration and How to Make Them!
We still seem to be fascinated with incorporating tassels into our jewelry. But really, what is there not to love about it. There are so many ways in which you can create interesting tassels using chain, fibers, seed beads, feathers and leather to name a few.
In April of 2015, I posted a blog post titled: Tassels are Awesome! 20 Jewelry Designs and Tutorials to Inspire! Many of these projects are as fresh to me now as they were 2.5 years ago.
The full blog post and all the inspiring tassels is worth taking a look at, but here are some of my favorite tassel inspirations.
This tassel is created with feathers. I just want to run it across my face!!! The top part looks like a Nunn Design Channel Bead wrapped with rhinestone chain. This is oh so cool and I want to try it! Who knows of a good feather source? It looks like this necklace is no longer available, but it is from Anthropologie.
All right, sorry, this is not an Anthropologie advertisement; but seriously, they have some really awesome designers working with them! I love this necklace. The pink feathers, the stones and pearls and all that yummy gold!!! It looks like this necklace is no longer available, but it is from Anthropologie.
This necklace is no longer available from Stella and Dot, but I love how the rhinestone chain wraps around the top.
I’m still crazy about 3 Divas Studio. Oh so boho!
