DIY Chain Tassel Lariat Necklace

diy chain tassel necklace

As I was browsing through the Vogue Accessory Italy Spring/Summer 2009 magazine last night {which I was lucky enough to receive from an ex co-worker just yesterday …thank you By Twil!} I stumbled upon this fabulous tassel necklace by Blugirl and fell in love. And then I remembered that just last week I specifically went to JoAnne’s to pick up some chains to stitch onto my bikini …but didn’t use them because the ruffle came to me after and clearly, I thought it was better. And then right after that I remembered that the trip to JoAnne’s prior to that I snatched up a few upholstery tassels because I was thinking about making earrings out of them …and clearly, never did!

And Voila! I have my new favorite necklace.

Here’s what you’ll need…


If you have a long chain …or preferably, two long chains that you can hook to each other, then all you need to buy are the tassels {$3-4.99 each}…{or you can make your own out of leather!}
… but the craft chains are only {$3-4.99} each





…they’re the FRYE Women’s Emily Slingback Platform
& finally went on sale at Victoria’s Secret {now sold out} but I’m not sure I like the way they make my legs look.

…but clearly I’m in love with my new Helmut Lang Silk Romper!


…I knotted the black one twice to shorten the length between chain & tassel

…and this one almost looks like nipple tassels …lol!
