I carried my ripped out page to my Soul Sisters Weekend along with a container of various beads and we set to work.
Now we can show you how to make your own:
We began with a cord about 31 inches long. Set aside and assemble your eye pins.
Attach a charm to the bottom "eye" and stack beads onto the pin.
I wanted the "boho" look, so I choose many random colors, sizes, and shapes. I tried hard not to coordinate. I ended about 1/4 inch from the end of the pin, ending with the smallest bead. (Ending with a smaller bead on top will allow your tassel to hang straight down.) Using needle nosed pliers, I curled the end of the pin into a loop.
Repeat five times.
Now, thread your 5 eye pins onto your cord. You can either attach them directly onto the cord, or attach a jump ring first.
Fold your cord in half and tie a knot 2 inches up to create a loop:
I wanted to make this necklace an adjustable length, so I tied the ends into a slide knot. Take the end of each cord and tie a simple knot around the opposite end. Now you can slide the knots to make the necklace longer or shorter:
This gentleman on You Tube explains it nicely (I should have tricked you and told you this was my voice, hee hee):
Here are all the Soul Sisters' Tassel Necklaces:
Here is my casual necklace, but imagine the way it would sparkle using crystals and a silver chain!
