I’m using a #tbt (throwback Thursday to those that are unaware! – i.e. Mum 😉 ) to my advantage this week! Feels like ages ago when I did a tutorial on making leather tassels! Click here for the tutorial. I made quite a few of them and they’ve just been sat in a box and not been used since. I absolutely love the colours and seeing as though I missed out on all the vibrant chunky earrings in the recent sales that have been about I decided to make my own! I loved wearing these in Ibiza! Dangly earring are making a come back and I’m glad!
If you fancy making some similar earrings you will need:
· A pair of internal pliers
· Earring hooks
· Beads or small pendants for decoration
· x2 small metal links
· x2 larger metal links or hoops
Open up all of the links a little bit with the pliers in preparation. Using the two larger links together, thread the tassels onto one of them.
Close the larger links up with the pliers and now attach the smaller links.
On the end smaller links, add on any beads or small pendants you may have for decoration. You can make them as simple or blingy as you like!
Now just add on the earring hooks and close any gaps with the pliers to finish! 🙂
I couldn’t help carry on making more jewellery!! I now have a matching set 🙂
