Katie's Embellished Tassel Necklace Instructions
Designed by Katie Hacker for Leather Cord USA

Tassels are a great way to dress up designs and ready-made tassels from Leather Cord USA make it easy to decorate jewelry pieces. Give your tassels something extra by decorating them with seed beads. Katie Hacker created this modern necklace design to show you one of the many ways tassels can stand out. Follow the techniques below and start making your own tassel pieces!

Step one:
Follow the instructions in the Embellishing Tassels with Seed Beads Mini Tutorial to embellish the Leather Cord USA rust large suede leather tassel with Miyuki 11/0 galvanized dark aqua Delicas. Slide a Dakota Stones red tiger eye 8mm large-hole round bead onto the loop of the tassel.

Step two:
Cut a four-inch length of 20 gauge Artbeads Designer Wire in Gold. Attach the end of the wire to the loop of the tassel by creating a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops, please see our Handy Tip. String a TOHO 8/0 bead round in metallic bronze iris onto the wire, followed by a Dakota Stones 12x16mm druzy flat oval bead and another TOHO bead.

Step three:
Cut a length of gunmetal-plated brass cable chain approximately 18 inches long. Attach the tassel dangle to the center link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop on the end of the wire.

Step four:
Attach the hook of the silver-plated hook and eye clasp set to the end of the chain. For help opening the link, please see our Jump Ring Handy Tip Video.
