Tassel earrings By Natalie Ballard
For this project I created tassel earrings using some faux leather and the hyacinth die piece.
1 x sheet of faux leather from Bee Bee Crafts
Hyacinth die set.
Step 1. On the back of your piece of faux leather mark out where your die comes to and cut to size. You can see from the photos I managed to get two from quite a small space by rotating the die on its side.
Step 2. Cut out your pieces and run them through your die cutting machine.
Step 3. Using a quilling tool carefully roll the tassel into a tight coil gluing at regular intervals and finally at the end.
Step 4. Once rolled add a bead cap to the top and use a metal finding to poke through the flower to create your hook with. I also glued a spacer on to the top to help keep a tidy finish. Repeat for both to make earrings or add a chain to make a pendant.
Step 5.Attach the earring fitting to finish the earrings.
