As I was organizing and cutting up strands of stones for storage, I noticed how pretty some of the tassels were that came at the end of the gemstone strands. That’s when I thought to myself, how neat would it be to incorporate tassels into a few of my pieces?
I’ve already made a pendant component with one of the tassels. This mother of pearl black shell disc was selected specifically for it’s yellowish tones. Around it, I created a secure frame accented with gold-filled rounds, to which I attached the tassel. It came out quite nice. I’m just waiting for my order of chain to come in this month to finish of the piece.
However, I have these other tassels that aren’t all nice and straight like the first one I used. I don’t want to throw them away because they are rather nice and can be much more so if tamed. Does anyone know how I would go about straightening tassels?
