It’s been a little while since I’ve made any jewelry. I think this is the first jewelry post of the year! Better late than never right? I guess I haven’t felt that inspired recently.
If I feel like I need more inspiration I look through pinterest, other DIY blogs and even online stores for inspiration.
But Here’s a really simple beaded and tassle combination. If you’re interested in other tassle DIY projects, I have done a similar project before here.
- Waxed Linen
- Embroidery Thread
- Cut a long piece of waxed thread, at least 3 times your wrist circumference. Fold this in half and tie a knot as shown.
- Start threading beads through each loose thread. You can choose to fill it up completely so that you can’t see any thread or you can do like I did and have spaces.
- Once you’re happy with how it looks, tie a knot to stop the beads from falling out. Then tie another knot a little below the first knot. Make sure the hole is large enoughe to fit a tassel through.
- Next we start on making the tassle. Get 3 or 4 colours of embroidery threda at 1 meter each. Fold this about 3 or 4 times.
- Use another piece of embroidery thread to tie around the tassle bunch with a knot.
- Using the same thread, attach the tassle bunch to the ready made bracelet.
- Fold eveyrhting down into a tassle shape and tie another embroidery thread around everything as shown.
- Start wrapping the loose thread around the tassle.
- Set the wrapped thread in place using glue.
- Cut the ends of the tassle bunch and neaten the look.
Ta da! You’re done! This is a super simple project that anyone with the right materials can achieve.
