Inspiration: Bar and Chain Earrings

I've always been an earring girl. For years it was danglers and chandeliers for me, which eventually were swapped for studs and smaller posts. I'm ready to branch into new earring styles, and now couldn't be a better time. Ear cuffs, crawlers, jackets, staples, front-back earrings... there are so many ways to up your earring game, it's overwhelming! I've been particularly drawn to bar and chain styles like these pictured here. I love how they're so subtle but so much more interesting that your average studs. I put together my own DIY version, which I'll share soon!

How to Make a Chain Tassel



Happy how-to Tuesday! Before sharing this week's tutorial, I wanted to share how to make a chain tassel. While chain tassels are available ready-made, by making your own you can customize the size, chain, and color of metal to your liking (the supply links below work to make a tassel about 1 1/2 inches long). This technique works not only for the project I'll share soon, but can be used for tassel earrings, a tassel pendant, or even a decorative tassel for a bracelet.
