DIY Tassel Necklace

Hi friends! Today my friend, Holly, is sharing a really cute necklace DIY with us.  Her blog is full of fun tutorials, book reviews, yummy recipes and much more.  Be sure to check it out!

I hope you enjoy her tassel necklace tutorial--I'm definitely making one of these! (They'd make great gifts too!)

Hi Good Natured readers!  I'm so excited to share this project with you :)

I love a big statement necklace as much as anyone, but sometimes I want something simpler.  So, I decided to make a fun but basic tassel necklace!

To make your own, you will need:

  • Chain, two different varieties
  • Large jump bead (a bead with a jump ring on each end)
  • Needle nosed pliers
  • Wire cutters

    First, cut approximately 30 inches of chain for the necklace.

    Then, cut the remaining chain down to four inch pieces.  You will need seven pieces that match your necklace chain, and three pieces of a different accent chain.

    Open one side of your jump bead, string on the short chains, and close the jump ring securely.

    Do the same on the other end to attach the necklace, and voila!  You've got yourself a chain tassel necklace.
