Tassel Earrings...

A customer came into the shop the other day and I helped her put together a bracelet from a rather fancy strand of gemstones.  The ends of the strand were decorated with tassels.  (I never really understood why they added those.  Is it to reinforce that they're fancy or maybe some kind of secret pricing code?)

Instead of throwing the tassels away, I made earrings with them.  They're really simple.  Just jump rings added to the tassels to connect them to the leaver-back earwires.  I think they're fun!

Awesome! Did you know that in Carter Singh's store on Etsy she sells them? I want to buy a bunch. They are a great pop of color and feather light. It helps me justify that I have always kept things like that! Enjoy the day. Erin

I seem to think most everything can find a unique home sooner or later. I even save pieces of cording and such just in case. These would look cute with a long flowing skirt. Boho Chic!!
