Make a trending pair of tassel earrings! This statement design is everywhere at the moment! Everyone will want a pair of these when they see you wearing yours. Please note the pink cat's eye beads are no longer available and have been replaced with a sparkly alternative!

Step 1

Each earring will require 5 of the bracelets in your packet. Begin by re-stringing one bracelet onto Nymo thread. Once you reach the end, pass the needle back up through the second bead from the end and continue to weave an inch into the strung beads. Tie a knot onto the thread and continue to weave further up the design. Add another knot for security, weave the tail another inch into the design and trim away the tail. Finish the opposite side in the same way. Repeat with three more bracelets so that you have four strands all together.

Step 2

Lay out all your strands next to each other. Cut a 30cm length of thread, fold it in half and tie a larks head knot around the middle of all of the threads.

Step 3

With all of your cords now brought together, pass the double thread through the inside hole of the bead cap. String on four seed beads and pass the thread back down and through the bead cap. Pull the thread taught so that the seed beads at the top of the bead cap form a circle. Finish the two strands by threading on the seed beads from your fifth bracelet onto each side. Finish them in the same way as before.

Step 4

Take a gemstone bead, thread it onto an eyepin and make a loop.  Close the loop you just made onto the bottom loop of an eyepin. Open a jumpring using a pair of pliers and connect it to the bottom loop of the gemstone bead and the seed bead loop of your tassel. Repeat these steps to make your second earring.
