We show you how easy it is to make your own colourful mini tassels using silkon thread with the help of a fork, plus plenty of project ideas to transform them into beautiful jewellery. We also show you some more experimental designs using thicker cord and gemstones.
At Kernowcraft, we provide everything you need for your handmade jewellery designs - if you have a question or need advice, please do get in touch.
Tag us in your tassel jewellery on social media - we love sharing our favourite designs!
Silkon thread: In this video tutorial, we used our silkon thread which is synthetic fibre which does not fray or stretch making it perfect for this project! It's available in a range of beautiful colours. You can however do similar techniques with other threads.
Scissors: for cutting the thread.
Jump ring: for attaching to the tassel to hang from chain, earwires or add components such as wire-wrapped beads. Read our advice page on opening and closing a jump ring here.
Each jewellery making kit comes with step by step instructions and all the supplies you need to get making...
You can combine as many tassels as you like to chain to create a colourful necklace!
We love this design! We simply wire wrapped our pink opal beads and attached to the tassel and earwires for a beautiful make.
The products used in these projects are suggestions to inspire you. Products used were compatible at the time of making but do be aware that stocks can vary, so do use your own judgement as to the compatibility of each item when making.
