I have some thin cord which I find too fine and slippery for cord work. So I was pleased to see Erica of Honestly WTF's tutorial for a pair of simple cord tassel earrings. It's a great way to use thin cord up. Different colors can be used to coordinate with outfits.
Erica used bunka cord. The knitted and stretchy rayon cord is used for Bunka sishu, a Japanese embroidery artform. She just used glue. I would also tie the bunka bundle to the eye pins.
The other fun cord tassel earrings tutorial is by Kelsey from Shipwreck Beads' blog, Loose Ends. It's a great way to use up both leftover bits of cord AND beads.
