Custom Handmade Tassel with Seed Bead Cap
designed byCheri Carlson
Skill LevelIntermediate
TechniqueSeed-Beading
Time1-3 hours
Approximate Size3 to 3 1/4 Inches

Sometimes tassels need something extra special to set them apart. For this design, I show how to make a tassel by hand and finish with a beaded cap.

Cheri's Signature

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

To start the technique for making the seed bead caps for the tassels, string 30 Miyuki 11/0 Duracoat galvanized Muscat bronze Delicas onto the thread, tie the thread in a circle, and knot. Add one more row of Muscat bronze Delicas using the tubular peyote technique.
