Gorgeous, easy, fun and not very expensive . And since I make jewelry, it gives me a way to use up my left over chains. I can see this with silver colored hooks and chains and some blue beads. I can use a pair of blue earrings too. Then there's that box in my closet for make ahead Christmas gifts. A couple pair of these would be nice. Craft stores also carry aluminum chain in colors like pink, Aqua, black , so go wild.

Another great video for us beginners. I love the tassel and chain look on earrings and have made an all chain one but I love this on with the tassel. If I had not watched this I would have never realized the great way she attached the tassel all together . Did not realize this is so easy. Thanks. Anyone make these yet?
