Tassels – they’re everywhere! (If you haven’t already, check out my tassel earring DIY, here.) And let’s talk about rose gold – my personal metal of the moment, which I wrote about here and here.)
I’ve been coveting a longer-length tassel necklace (inspiration below…) the sort of thing that you could just throw on with anything. Ann Taylor & Stella and Dot have great versions… but they’re all over $60… which made me decide to make my own.
So today, I am going to simultaneously incorporate my two favorite trends: tassels and rose gold, while teaching you (promise) the easiest thing I’ll ever show you how to make that will (again, promise!) become a staple in your wardrobe… at least for the next couple seasons. What you’ll need: A large rose gold-tone tassel. I bought this one, a copper jump ring, and rose gold tone chain (about 58″.)
Start by attaching your jump ring to the tassel and cutting the chain into two, 29″ long pieces. (I played around and while 29″ is a random number, I found that it just looked best.)
Then, attach all four ends of the chain to the jump ring. (Two ends should go on each side of the tassel to keep things symmetric.)
And voila! You’re done! (Seriously.)
The final result.
Honestly, this one was so easy (takes about 5 min and you can buy all the supplies from one place for under $20,) that I feel like I cheated you guys a bit! But it’s such a simple project with such beautiful results, that I don’t feel all that bad. I’ll be wearing mine constantly.
