  • Jewelry pliers
  • Crimp beads
  • Tassels on rings


  1. Buy two strands of stones or glass beads, a package of crimp beads, and two tassels on rings.
  2. Thread the strands through a crimp bead, one tassel ring, and then back through the crimp bead.
  3. Flatten with pliers to secure. Repeat on the other end with the second tassel.
  4. For stylish wrapping, snip two slits near one side of a square of felt. Thread a suede cord through them and through the necklace, roll it up, and tie it in a knot.
