Eternal Summer Tassel Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
Use a tassel maker tool or the technique in our blog post to make your tassel. Remove eye from an eye pin and wrap around the floss a few times, then through the hole of the Cord End. Finish wire with a wrapped loop.
Each 2" eyepin has enough wire to make two bead chain units. Make the first one using the eye provided, and then use the remaining wire to make a second bead chain unit. Make 18 total bead chain units. (Create two chains of 9 units).
See Jewelry Basics 101 - PDF for step-by-step instructions on making wrapped loops and bead chain units. (Alternately, use one step looper to make each bead chain unit).
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
Cut the footage chain to a length that you desire. I cut two equal lengths of approximately 7.5" for this necklace. Attach the clasp at one end of each piece, using large sized jump rings from the assortment, and directly attach one of the bead chain sections to the other end. (See Jewelry Basics 101 - PDF for tips on best ways to open and close jump rings.)
Use a medium jump ring from the assortment to connect the bead chain sections and another to attach the infinity pendant to the first jump ring.
Use a matching jump ring to attach the tassel to the bottom of the infinity pendant.
