DIY Tassel Charm Bracelet


Make no mistake, there are loads of tassel jewelry tutorials out there, like this bracelet or this one. (Seriously, just google "DIY tassel bracelet.") While I risk over-saturating the DIY tassel jewelry market, I'm going to throw my hat into the ring with this project.

It's not as tasseled out as my DIY tassel necklace a few weeks back, I love how dainty these little tassels are. Since color combinations are as endless as the number of shades of embroidery you have, it's impossible to make just one. They then can be added to anything you want-- earrings, necklaces, or bracelets. Here's how!


Tools and Materials:
Embroidery thread
Chain (long enough to reach around your wrist)
Fold over crimp ends
Jump rings
Clasp
Earring wires (if making earrings)
Pliers and scissors (not pictured)




Wrap thread around your fingers several times to make a bundle.


Place one end of the bundle in the fold-over crimp end. Use the pliers to close the crimp end.


Trim the bundle and even out the ends.


Attach the fold-over ends onto a jump ring and add to one end of the chain. Add the second jump ring and clasp to the other end of the chain.


You can also string the tassels and jump ring onto a necklace or attach to ear wires to make earrings. Have fun!
