Fun Cord Tassel Earrings Tutorials

By on Thursday, November 21, 2013 3 Comments

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.

  1. Great idea. Sometimes you can get upholstery sample books that have tassels. This would make a very fast pair of earrings.

  2. Lovely ! I really am infatuated with the beaded version of the tassels - would be a creative way to not only use up scrapes of thin cording but also use up some of those small beads that one has left over from seed beading projects.
