Be the belle of the ball in our lovely tassel necklace.

The Technical Stuff

This beautiful necklace is perfect for festive parties. Featuring a tassel, crystals, bicone beads and rondelles, it is simple to make. If you can string beads, you can make this!

The only tricky piece is fixing the crimp beads – little beads that are squashed closed with pliers to hold everything in place.

Our instructions create a 60 cm (24 ins) necklace and it would be easy to add to the length if you prefer.

It won’t take long to make one of these necklaces, so why not make one as a special gift?

Have a rummage in our craft section for more project ideas.
