Tassels are all the rage right now, on furniture pulls, as flair on purses, and even hanging as pendants on necklaces.  I’ve seen so many versions of tassel bracelets, I thought I’d give it a try!

Supplies:

ONE cut 7 x 2″ pieces of suede TWO put a dab of glue inside the end cap THREE stack the pieces of suede together and pack tightly into the end cap FOUR trim suede to desired length FIVE connect the lobster clasp and jump ring to the end cap SIX attach to the object of your desire! I attached my tassel to one of my chunky gold chain bracelets.

Your options are endless, really! Suede cord is so cheap, and a little goes a long way to make these darling tassels!

    Uh, I’ve always been a tassel freak, yup! I hung them all over the place but my cats ruined most of them. They think they are toys.
    Love the gold and colors of your tassels.

    If there is one thing that totally intimidates me it is DIY-ing jewelry. All of those small rings and opening/closing clamps…totally makes my brain go elsewhere, but this does look relatively easy and adds some flair! Now, I am thinking of office space…see? Brain totally goes elsewhere….:/

    I love this! I just found your blog, and was immediately taken in by the fact you’re an accountant by day. Me too!! I started my blog, too, since all my mundane daily business work was so not creative. It was like I needed to go home and be surrounded by tons of color! Happy to have met you:)

    I have to ask where you picked up those end clasps?! I’ve been looking for something like that for a leather project I’m working on and cannot find one’s that look like/that quality. Thanks! This is a great tutorial btw, they came out great!
