Autumn Rainbow Tassel Necklace

Project details:

in favorites

I started this tassel with the intention of making a pattern out of bands of like-colors wrapping around the tassel. The pacifica finish adds such a soft gold luster to the these Czech colors. I added chain to allow for the tassel to flow as you wear it.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 16 4" lengths of wire (may change depending on you selected tassel cap)
  • 32 2" lengths of wire (may change depending on you selected tassel cap)
  • tassel cap (I used an ovoid shape)
  • 1' of small etched cable chain cut into 7 links segments
  • 6 colors
  • 6-7 strands of Czech 2mm druks
  • 1 strand of Czech 3mm druks
  • 2 strands of Czech 2mm firepolished rounds
  • 1 strand of Czech 3mm melons
  • 16 mini ball charms
  • needle nose, bent nose, and chain nose pliers
  • wire cutters

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Cut all of your lengths of wire and all of your lengths of chain.

Step 2

Wire wrap a loop one end of all of your 4" lengths of wire. Begin stringing your 4" lengths creating a simple pattern as your go.

Step 3

Lay your 4" strung lengths side by side as you go to ensure their pattern flows smoothly.

Step 4

Attach a wire wrap bead link to each loop of the tassel cap using the 2" length of wire and a 3mm melon. Attach the 7 link segment (approx 1/2") of chain to the bead link. Using your unfinished end, wire wrap your strung 4" length to chain.

Step 5

Wire wrap a bead link to the bottom of the strung 4"(ish) bead link using a 2" length of wire and a melon. Make sure to attach the mini ball charm to the bottom loop of this bead link before finishing off.
