We’re used to seeing jewelry that’s made of gold and silver, but jewelry doesn’t need to be made of metal to make a real statement! This week we’ve created a necklace that features silky cord and fun braided tassels. This necklace will go great with any summer outfit, or swap out the tassels for a look that goes right into fall.
3/16” Rayon Twist Cord
2.75” Braided Band Imported Tassels
1. Take your cord and measure the length you want your necklace to be. Cut to size.
2. Add the end caps to each cord end with E6000.
3. Add jump rings and lobster clasp.
4. Lastly, add your tassels to your necklace.
