DIY leather tassel necklace

Lately I've been seeing tassels everywhere. Tassel shoes, tassel purses, tassel earrings, tassel belts.

Gucci belt via Saks

Shoes via ASOS

Earrings via Urban Outfitters

Therefore I decided to make my own tassel-- in the form of a necklace. 


It was so simple! 

All you need is a scrap piece of leather, some chain, sharp scissors, and a glue gun. I embellished mine with extra chain and a few washers. I also used embroidery thread to tie the necklace together, because I didn't have any jewelry supplies lying around. 


I tried out different colors of leather as well. Next I think I'm going to try embroidery thread or chain, for two completely different looks. Tassels are so simple but kind of fun, don't you think? 

Let me know if you'd like a step-by-step for making these tassels!

nice post...I recently made loads of leather fringes to be used as flower centers but never really tried using them in jewelry...this inspite of all the trend research I have doing for my fashion articles..sometimes you really need others to show you a different way to look at your own stuff...thanks

And The Winners Are…Pants And Hats style file Style.com
Alexander Wang, Vena Cava, and Albertus Swanepoel nabbed the three prizes last night at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, but the evening also featured a couple of prevalent looks, which we’d like to think of as winners in their own right. The first is the pant—particularly one that’s carrot-shaped and cropped—a trend [url=http://english.ipp.ac.cn/coachoutlet365.html]coach outlet[/url] which reached critical mass at the Spring collections in various forms. The covered-leg crew included Juliette Lewis in a [url=http://english.ipp.ac.cn/coachoutlet365.html]cheap coach outlet[/url] sequined Phillip Lim jumpsuit, Chanel Iman in Daughters gray flannel, Agyness Deyn in a boyish tux, Liya Kebede in Proenza Schouler, Jessica Joffe in Helmut Lang, and Thelma Golden and Rachel [url=http://english.ipp.ac.cn/coachoutlet365.html]coach outlet[/url] Roy. With Swanepoel as a clearly worthy contender, it’s logical that millinery would also make a strong showing. Of course there was the designer’s own date, Coco Rocha, but joining her were Julie Gilhart in a jaunty mini top hat by Eugenia Kim, John Galliano in a daisy-strewn top hat, Deyn in a flattened boater from Marc Jacobs’ Spring show, and André Leon Talley in what looks like a very stylish evening hunting cap. Honorable mention goes to the one-shoulder dress, seen on Vogue‘s Meredith Melling Burke (in Peter Som) and Virginia Smith, and Style.com’s Candy Pratts Price, in Givenchy.—Meenal Mistry  Photo: Billy Farrell/PatrickMcMullan.com
