This DIY Tassel Kit contains all you need to create a Luxurious Sari Silk and Lampwork Bead Tassel Necklace.
I love Sari Silks and Tassels so decided to make some Lampwork Bead Caps and voila a DIY Kit.
You can see a Tassel I made as an example in photos 6 and 7.
For the beads (which are very organic in shape), I have used my favorite Effetre colors Saffron Yellow and Orange with Reactive Double Helix for some Brassy Shine and I have slightly overcooked the glass to get a slightly grungy feel to the set.
I found some wonderful Recycled Sari Silk Ribbon in shades of Red and Orange which I have sorted, ironed and removed excess threads - There are 5 pieces all 30cm (almost 12 inches) long and they range from between 30mm and 45mm wide.
I have also included 1 Hand Knitted 100% Cotton Cord in a colour called Gold and this measures 80cm and is an idea lenght to make an easy to wear Slip-Over-Your-Head necklace, you can find tutorials on how to finish the cord on my Blog here https://ooooh385997471.wordpress.com/
And it all comes packed into a Organza Bag which makes it perfect for Gift Giving.

1) Photos are taken using natural light and a flash, I color match the photos to my screen, but all computers display colors differently.
2) The photos of the tassel 6 and 7 is to show how the Tassel could look when completed.
3) This Kit does not include the Sterling Silver Hook discussed in the Tutorial.
I used Effetre and Double Helix in this set and all my beads go directly from the flame into my digital kiln.
I do combine shipping, so you only pay shipping on the first item and the others travel for free.
