Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut one 24" piece of cord.
Step 2:
Wrap cord around fingers five times, creating a coil about 2" long.

Use tweezers to grasp the strands at the top of the coil. Straighten strands so they are neatly aligned, then use pliers to flatten.
Step 4:
Pick up one cord end and use tweezers to tuck the top of the strands inside securely.
Step 5:
Use flat nose or parallel pliers to crimp cord end until secure.
Step 6:
Use scissors to cut loops at the bottom of the coil, creating a tassel.
Step 7:
String one seed bead onto one strand of the tassel. Tie an overhand knot at the bottom. Do not tighten yet.
Step 8:
Repeat Step 7 on the remaining 9 strands.
Step 9:
Adjust position of seed beads and knots as desired before tightening knots securely. (Optional: apply a tiny drop of adhesive to each knot for extra security.)
Step 10:
Trim cord ends as desired.
Step 11:
Open one jump ring and attach to loop at top of cord end. Before closing attach loop of one earring post. Close jump ring.
Step 12:
Repeat Steps 1-11 for second earring.
Step 13:
Tips: Use chain or flat nose pliers to flatten the top of the coil before tucking into cord end. When crimping cord end try squeezing from the loop side.
