Take the two sides of your threads and pull down to combine. When this is complete, wrap the gold wire tightly around the top, forming the “head” of the tassel. (See below)
String your beads onto the stretchy, clear jewelry cord, making sure that it is a good size for your wrist. (I used 20 beads but they were small!) String both sides of the elastic through two crimp beads and the tassel, with the tassel in the middle. (See below)
Pull the strings together tightly. With pliers, clamp down the crimp beads found on both sides of the tassel. The crimp beads will hold the strings and tassel in place. Cut the leftover string.
Almost complete! Using SHARP scissors, simply cut your tassel to the desired length, making sure all of the ends are even. Be careful not to cut too much at once. You can always go back and trim uneven pieces.

The thing that’s great about these tassel bracelets is that they are easily customizable. You can use any color thread… neon, pink, blue, orange…. and any type of beads! I would really like to find some wooden beads to try next.
If you try this out I would LOVE to know! Tag me in the Instagram of your finished product and use the hashtag #curlsandpearlsDIY and I may re-gram you! 🙂
Pssst. Don’t forget about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on because prices go back up soon! I tried on this sweater the other day in the store and it SO cute. I also really want these shoes to wear with jeans in the fall!
