Tassels

ohmigawd, when I started this blog Iwasn't nearly as busy--but I will not give up! Here's another couple of projects. I'm just now coming down from a tassel bender. I jumped on the make-your-own-tassel-earrings train, with inspiration coming from here, here, and here.
The results:
 
Top: Emroidery thread + buttons + super glue + earring hooks
Bottom: curtain tassels + buttons + super glue + earring hooks and loads of cheap chain + earring hooks
In my fantasy world I'm wearing them with my disco bracelet, giggling in a corner of Studio 54 with Mick and Halston.
The reality is though that they are not child proof (ouch) so they only come out for schmancy occasions.
Giving my ears a break, I used some pre-made chain fringe from Michael's, added bead caps, doubled up some chain, and created this tassel necklace.
