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.


Code: ABT-20160114-01

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.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
