Do It Yourself Dazzling Druzy & Tassel Earrings {+ Giveaway}

Maybe it's the boho vibe they give off or the instant fashion statement they make, but I'm ridiculously obsessed with tassel earrings!  Actually, my obsession with tassels goes beyond earrings and includes just about anything fringed. I love the look of fringed raw-cut denim jeans, bags and jackets with fringe, and even home decor accessories like tassel and fringe embellished pillows. Yup, I wasn't kidding when I said I'm obsessed.


Which brings me to the fun do-it-yourself project we're making today. I'm going to show you how you can rock your own custom-made tassel earrings! You're going to LOVE it! The earrings are SO EASY to make and the best part is that you can make them in a wide variety of colors and lengths to fit your individual style. I chose to use sparkly druzy stones and gold findings but there are so many more options out there for you to create your own look.


Supplies needed:
1. 2" or 4" Chainette Fringe (Cut to the desired length)
2. Two (2) Earring Hooks 
3. Two (2) Jump Rings (4mm)
4. Two 2 End Caps (Fits minimum 7-8mm cord)
5. Two 12mm Round Resin Druzy Stones (12mm round)
6. Two Cabochon Connector Settings (Fits 12mm stone)
7. Two Pairs of Needle Nose Pliers 
8. Scissors

Directions:
1. Begin by measuring out the length of fringe that will fit inside the end caps. Lay out the fringe and begin to tightly roll up the fringe until it will fight snug inside the cap. 
2. Using scissors, cut the fringe to the desired length. 
3. Cut a second piece of fringe using the first piece as your template. This will ensure your tassels are the same size. 
4. Tightly roll each tassel using a small amount of glue along the top edge approximately every half inch. Allow the tassel to dry a few minutes before placing a small amount of glue inside the cap and inserting the tassel into the cap. You may need to twist and lightly push to get the top of the tassel inside the cap with no edge of the fringe being exposed. Allow tassels to dry 2-3 hours. If you haven't already, now is a good time to glue the druzy stones onto the connectors. 
5. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and pick up a small jump ring.
6. Using the second pair of needle nose pliers, gently swing the jump ring open by twisting it. Do not pull the ring up and open it because it will be difficult to shape it back into a perfect loop. Think of the jump ring as a gate swinging open and shut. 
7. Place the tassel and the connector onto the jump ring. It should look like image 7 above. 
8. Do the same for the top connector using the loop on the earring hook as your jump ring. 
9. Voila! Your first earrings are finished! 


Most of my supplies were purchased from online wholesalers, but you can find many of the items at your local fabric shop. Depending on the size of your earring caps, you shouldn't need more than 1/4 yard of chainette fringe. If you plan to make several pairs of earrings as gifts or prefer one-stop shopping online, you will find a large collection of chainette fringe colors, here, (2 yards) along with gluejewelry toolsand jewelry findings.


Enjoy. I know you will love wearing these tassel earrings as much as I do. The earrings are very versatile and can be worn for date night or when keeping it casual. My daughter wore the white tassel earrings when she went out the other night and now I've received requests from three of her friends to make the earrings. Am I the nicest mom, or what?
