Tassel Necklace

I was looking the beading section at a craft store and my eyes fell across a tassel—but to my disappointment it wasn’t a cute one. Tassels are interesting to me because they can go one to too ways: sophisticated or trashy (depending on how they’re used and what they’re made of). There weren’t any other tassel options to buy, so I thought I would just make my own.

With the supplies I already had at home, I chose a bead to be the top of my tassel and attached a pearl beneath it and then added a few lengths of chain below that. I thought about the tassel being on just a single chain, but it was too dull. So I decided to crisscross the chains to create more visual interest.
