When I saw these leather tassel earrings in Divisoria at P30 a pair, I knew I had to buy a few pairs and make something with them. I remembered THIS tutorial I wrote for CandyMag.Com, and went ahead and worked off of that.
I have extra necklace chains lying around, so I grabbed a gold one to match the tassel barrels.
The first order of business was to remove all the earring hooks from the tassels. I wasn’t going to use them as earrings anyways.
With my trusty pliers, I opened the jump rings. Remember to always open jump rings sideways and not apart, so you don’t break them!
Then, I hooked the tassels onto the chain, about 5 spaces apart.
All done! You can definitely dangling earrings of any kind for this project. Check out Claire’s and see what they have on sale or clearance. You’re bound to find something for you.
