Viva La Tassels

About this design:

This free-spirited funky bracelet is ON TREND and full of color and texture. This piece lays playfully on your wrist, as the tassels dangle. Create this piece with your own spin on it, change up the colors or use leather instead of hemp.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 10-11" of hemp/leather (bracelet) or 10-11" for (choker necklace), 10-12 antique gold jump rings, 15-16 tassels of your choice and size ranges, 2 crystal bead links, 2 antique gold charms of your choice. Use round nose and bent nose pliers to easily open and close your jump rings. I attached the jump rings around the bottom of the hemp. I embellished half of the hemp length, you could easily go all the way around. To finish the hemp, you could add ribbon end crimps or fold and stitch with a colorful waxed linen or thread like I did. Or just stitch the ends of the braid together and add bees wax to keep them from fraying. I just used a simple button as a closure, it slides right between the hemp.
