Tassel Earring Fittings (save 66.6%)
$1.00 On sale
Just found these in a cupboard at Bead Shack - they are pretty old stock! In their heyday, what we did was slide beads up the chains and squeeze a crimp underneath the bead, which held it onto the chain. We would do one earring, then hang it on a glass tumbler or vase, then you hang the next one to be made as well, and you can measure with your eyesight to do the second one the same. Do keep your head straight and not on the side when measuring LOL
These days, tassels are in fashion. We had some chain tassels in stock a bit earlier in the year, and they were chain hanging from under a bead cone. So, I thought if you disconnect the ear wire from the chain and join two pieces together onto an eyepin, then feed the eyepin up through a bead cone, you will have a cute tassel to use for earrings, decorations or as a pendant. Just a thought.
If you can see yourself getting creative with these lovely fittings, grab some today. Usually priced at $3, they are only now $1 a pair.
The gold are still really shiny. The dark silver have a few darker parts here and there, but I think it just makes them look a bit antiqued.
So go on - get creative!
