I am a fan of statement earrings.  I typically wear my wedding ring, watch and a pair of big bold earrings.  They make an outfit and can take something casual up a notch.  I am seeing tassels everywhere; keychains, bookmarks, purses and jewelry.  Tassels are really easy to make so I thought I would try my hand at making a pair of tassel earrings.

I started with a broken pair of earrings and pulled off the hooks to use for these tassel earrings.  You can also buy earring hooks to make these.


  • Earring hooks
  • Jump ring
  • Embroidery floss
  • Pliers
  • Scissors

These tassel earrings can be made in whatever length and width you want.  I like my earrings long and determined that the width of 4 fingers is a perfect length.  I wrapped a half skein of embroidery floss around my fingers to start.  To make thicker tassels, use a full skein of floss.  I cut off the end then wrapped it around the top quarter of the loop and tied a knot.  Next I cut the bottom loop to create my tassel.

To make these tassels into earrings I opened a jump ring with a pliers and pushed it through the top loop of the tassel.  I hooked my earring hook onto the jump ring then closed it and pressed the ends of the jump ring together with my pliers.  

When both earrings were complete I trimmed the ends so they would be even.  These tassel earrings are lightweight but make a big statement.  I have a rainbow of embroidery floss in my craft room and could make these in any color, they might become a summer jewelry staple.
