An easy way to spruce up a bag, a long necklace, or a clutch, can simply be done by adding a tassel.
I made the tassel in the picture above by gluing strands of silk thread into a bead cap. Before applying the glue, I inserted a metal finding and looped it inside the bead cap. From the other end, I created another loop (using round-nose pliers) to attach the key holder clasp.
I use this tassel every time I want to change the look of an accessory. It immediately adds a boho-chic vibe to the look. I made a number of other tassels that are now out of reach :-)
- Silk thread
- Super glue (or E6000)
- Bead cap
- Eye-pin (metal) finding
Tassels & Tradition
No one culture can claim tassels to itself. In my culture, a tassel always reminds me of the loose end of a Sufi rosary ~ which always enjoys a nice-looking tassel. When I wear one I feel happy that global fashion is now more & more attracted to symbols & motifs from the Sufi tradition: Turbans, tassels, harem pants.
