Suede Tassel Earrings
Step 1: Gather tools + materials: 2mm flat suede (2 pieces 20" ea), 24 ga wire (2 pieces 6", 2 pieces 4"), 2 matching beads, pair french wires, wire cutters, scissors, round nose pliers, bent nose pliers, business card cut to 3" long.
Step 2: Wrap one of the pieces of suede around the 3" card. You should have enough length to wrap 3 times. Slide off of card and cut loops on bottom with scissors.
Step 3: Use a 6" piece of 24 ga wire to make a binding wrap approx 1/4" from the top of the tassel.
Step 4: Use either the same piece of wire you made the binding wrap with (just feed it up through the loops on the top of the tassel) or use a new 4" piece of 24 ga wire to gather the loops at the top of the tassel.
Step 5: Feed the wire up through your bead and finish with a wire wrapped loop at the very top.
Step 6: Repeat for second earring. Attach to French Wires. Make more 🙂
