How to Make a Fringe Tassel Necklace
When it comes to accessorizing, fringe is fun! See for yourself when you make this trendy Fringe Tassel Necklace. This project is great for a jewelry crafter just starting out. You'll get the chance to practice working with jewelry pliers and wire cutters, plus you're sure to get a great finished project.
Cut an 18" and a 14" length of wire.

Use the flat nose pliers and jump ring finger tool to open a jump ring. Grip on side of the jump ring with the tip of the pliers and insert the bottom of the jump ring into the jump ring finger tool Twist the jump ring to open it, do not pull apart.
Slide on tassel
Slide a gray tassel onto the jump ring and attach it 4 1/2" from the end of the 14" chain. Close the jump ring by twisting it back together with the pliers and jump ring finger tool.
Repeat Step 2 and 3, attaching the next gray tassel 5 chain links down from the first. Repeat until there are 8 gray tassels on the chain.
Attach black tassels
Attach a black tassel 5 3/4" from the end of the 18" chain. Attach each tassel 5 links down from the last until you have attached 10 total.
Join the last links of the 14" and 18" chains with jump rings on each side. Before closing the jump ring on the right side of the chain, slide on a lobster clasp to create a closure for the necklace.
