Transcript:Trendy Beaded Tassel Earrings

Hi, I'm Mariana Leung, the designer and publisher of msfabulous.com. I'm here for About.com today to teach you how to make trendy beaded tassel earrings. 

Beaded Tassel Earring Materials

For this project, you are going to need:

  • Thread
  • Earring hooks
  • Needle
  • Seed beads and 2 larger beads
  • A pair of scissors

Thread Earring Hook to Large Beads

First, you are going to take a small seed bead through needle and put through. You are going to knot your bead so you can anchor your larger bead and then through the end. You're taking your larger bead next and putting your needle through. And then you are also looking through your earring hook. You probably want to loop through the large bead a few more times through the earring hook just to keep it secure.  Make sure you are going through both the hook and the bead.

Create Bead Tassels

Next, you are going to start beginning making your beaded tassel.  You need about 15 to maybe even 30 seed beads. Make sure the beads you choose go through the needle very easily because you are going to go through them more than once. You are going to loop around the last bead of your tassel strand and you are pulling your thread all the way through your strand and then you go through your big bead again and loop through your earring hook.  Make sure you are not caught on anything. And you go through your big bead one more time and you make your next strand of beads.

Finish Beaded Tassel Earrings

Depending on how full you want your tassel, you will repeat the tassel strand as many times as you need to, and try to remember how many beads you had in each strand. When you are ready to finish your earring, pull your thread through the large bead through the top and create a knot with the loops you made previously through the earring loop. And then trim the end. 

And that's how you make trendy beaded tassel earrings. For more information, go to About.com.
