Retired - Turquoise Tassel Earrings

PROJECT E008
Designer: Amanda Nistor
Skill Level: Beginner
Fun little earrings highlighted by sassy tassels using tiny little Czech charlotte seed beads.
Instructions
  1. To make the tassel, cut about 6" of 0.6mm Power Pro beading thread and fold it in half.
  2. Thread this doubled-up thread through a 7mm jump ring and fold in half again, enclosing the jump ring in the center.
  3. Add a crimp bead to all four strands, and crimp down.
  4. Cut the very ends of the thread, so that you now have four strands hanging off of the 7mm jump ring.
  5. After the crimp bead, add a daisy spacer and a 4mm turquoise fire polish Czech glass bead.
  6. To three of the hanging threads, add about 3/4" (approximately 20) of the tiny seed beads.
  7. To each of the three beaded strands, add a crimp and crimp down.
  8. Cut the remaining fourth string directly under the 4mm fire polish bead.
  9. Gently opening the 7mm jump ring containing the tassel, add the turquoise donut bead and close again.
  10. Add another 7mm jump ring to the donut bead, and connect this to one of the 4mm jump rings.
  11. Connect the 4mm jump ring to the earring leverback hook.
