Colorful crystal tassels can be used to create elegant jewelry or a beautiful embellishment. Kit includes a template which allows you to vary the length of each tassel and number of crystals to change the look and effect. Choose either WireLace in 1mm or 3mm - or even mix two colors of 1mm WireLace together for added strength and dimension of color - the possibilites are endless!
For simplicity the instruction samples all use SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm Bicone Beads. Should you vary the size crystals keep in mind the end use of the tassel and the WireLace test strength as you don't want to 'overload' the strands - 1mm approx. 3 lb; 3mm about 6 lb.
The Tassel Template Kit allows you to make matching multi-loop earrings with ease! Fun, fast and easy - you'll want to make them for all your friends and family. Use the tassels for earrings, necklaces or adorn your home with a large lush tassel for your pillow, curtain tieback, window shade pull or whatever you can dream up!
KIT INCLUDES: instructions, tassel template, 1 pack (4 needles) fine weight collapsible eye needles.
