Chain tassel earrings

This quick project will bring you today's trend in three easy steps!
Chain Tassels easy earrings
Premade tassels offer endless possibilities for making quick, simple earrings. You can embellish the ends with metal beads, or incorporate crystals or a single focal bead in the middle of the tassel. You can even decorate the tassel’s bullet end with flat-back crystals. For a more understated look, leave the tassels plain or trim the chains short before you attach beads. Tassels are sold by the dozen and are available in a variety of finishes and chain styles, so go ahead and try several variations.
