This tassel necklace can be made with any number of bead combinations. Dig around in her bead inventory and see what you come up with. You’ll need to first find 1 large bead around 40mm; 2 medium sized beads, around 25-20mm; and a smaller bead that’s 8-10mm.

I chose some brown glass beads, and I used brown colored nylon thread. To accent these beads, I combined some moon stone, gold stone, and root beer colored Czech crystal beads. Then I used off white Japanese seed beads and brown bugle beads as the filler beads.

To make a tassel necklace, you’ll need:

Size 2 nylon thread with attached needle
1 large bead (about 40mm)
2 medium beads (about 25-20mm)
1 *smaller bead (about 8-10mm)
Seed beads
Bugle beads
Misc. glass and/or stone beads
Corsage pin
Clear nail polish or glue

Note: I like using clear nail polish because it works like glue, but the brush makes it easier to apply where you need to. But, it’s up to you. Glue is great; just make sure you use clear drying and that you have a narrow applicator so you can dab the glue where you want it instead of getting it all over the place.
