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 πŸ™‚
