Egyptian Summer Jewellery

Step 1

Learn how to make your Eqyptian Summer Jewellery set with your instructions available to download HERE. 

To make the tassel on your pendant, you will need to follow the following separate step by step instructions as you follow your project sheet which you can download above. If you have already got ready made/purchased tassels then you can skip the following steps and continue with the project sheet download. 

Step 2

To make your tassel, take some turquoise/bright blue embroidery thread or a similar draping thread. 

Cut a piece of sturdy cardboard measuring approx. 10cm. From the reel of thread, wrap it around this approx. 70 times. Feel free to do more wraps if you want, you can take out excess cord after trimming your tassel.

Step 3

Leave a few inches of thread and cut your thread off your reel. Move this tail thread upwards and out of the way so it doesn’t get cut. Carefully slot one side of your scissors under the threads on one end of your cardboard. Cut them at the base while holding the top of the tassel. Hold the tassel between your fingertips and take away the cardboard.

Step 4

Take your long length of thread that you put to one side of the top of your tassel and wrap this tightly around the top of the tassel. Don't worry about how messy this is, you will hide this inside your pendant. Holding this in place, take a second piece of thread from within the tassel, and knot your wrapped thread to this. Knot a second time to secure. You can now trim this longer thread to match the rest. If you don't think this is secure, take another length of thread and tightly wrap around the top of the tassel until it is secure. 

Step 5

If you find that your tassel isn't large enough when it comes to adding it to your pendant design and beading around the top, you can make another tassel to fill the gap and wrap this tassel to the original.
