DIY Chain Tassel Earrings


DIY, amazing diys, chain earrings, earring diy, chain earring diy, tassel earrings do it yourself







Voila, diy, tassel earrings,
You can trim chains to hang at an angle ~ Try them on and make adjustments from there.

NOTE* I used the pliers to adjust the loop on the earring base
it was facing sideways and I wanted it in front.


I planned on doing these at the beginning of July but ended up doing the chain tassel long necklaces instead. So now I’ve done both.

You can get creative with this project and leave the tassels long if you wish and even add beads to the chains. They’re really fun and while they do take a bit of patience as the chain links are very tiny, it’s a pretty simple project. Have fun!
