DIY Tassel Necklace Supplies

step 1
Using your needle and thread start stringing your beads.

You will want to make 4 or 5 strings of beads, depending on your beads. I used 65 beads for each string and I made 5 strings. Each string is about 8 inches long.

I recommend tying a knot around the first bead and stacking the next few beads on top of your end thread. You can see this in the photos below, it will help to hide your end.DIY Tassel Necklace Beading

step 2
When you have added all the beads you want to your string, loop around the last bead and tie a knot.

The loop around your bead and run your thread through your beads to hide your end.

Do this for all 5 of your strings of beads.DIY Tassel Necklace Beading 2

step 3
Open one of your jump rings and place it around all 5 of your strings of beads, in the center.

Be sure to close it tightly, even overlap it if necessary to keep the strings from slipping out.DIY Tassel Necklace Making Tassel

step 4
Using your needle and thread, sew this jump ring (with the strings of beads) up through the hole in the top of your end cap to your second jump ring on the outside top of your end cap.

Be sure to make this very tight and secure, sew around several times.

    Hello! I am a librarian in Texas and my patrons love jewelry programs and I found your blog while searching online. I would love to do a workshop to make this necklace (I have already credited your blog in my worksheet), but wanted to ask if it would be okay to use one of the necklace. I am having trouble finding an image of this type of necklace that has a public license. I would be using the picture on the publicity sign I create for the workshop. Love your blog! Thank for your consideration!
