Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Create a flower as per instructions for French Knit Flower Necklace (page 11, Spring/Summer '11 Catalogue) but this time, don’t add a connector. Attach the flower to a sieve disc using the ends of wire. This works best if you use smaller drop beads to make a smaller flower.

Step 2

Cut approx. 30cm of Beadalon flexible jewellery wire and attach to an eyepin using a crimp bead. Thread on seed beads to the length you’d like your tassel, allowing for the length of the cone. Finish with a crimp bead and cut off any excess wire.

Step 3

Repeat step 2, adding 7 beaded strands. Thread the eyepin up through the cone, thread through a hole at the bottom of the sieve and make a wrapped loop.

Step 4

Find the hole at the top, directly above the hole you’ve added your tassel to. Open up two jump rings and add to the holes either side of this hole. Join with one jump ring, and attach the earwire to this ring.

Step 5

Repeat steps 1-4 to create your second earring, making sure you match the length of the tassels on each earring. Add a dab of glue behind the top petal of each flower to prevent it from drooping when worn.
