diy your own christmas gift

I threaded long suede tassles through the rim of the disc plate and tied each tassle in place

Using small pliars, I removed the hanging discs and chains hanging underneath the disc plate
I also removed the chains that hang around the neck and replaced them with more suede tassles. I added random knots along each tassle (I’ll probably add some more)
The final piece.

I left a few chain strands hanging to mix with the tassles
Poncho: Spanish Moss. Suede fringe necklace: DIY
Inspired by this post showing fringed necklaces, I decided to have a go and make my own.
I found the tassles years ago and kept them knowing I could always use them one day.
Anyway Merry Christmas everyone. What are your plans? I’m off to make apple crumble and wrap last minute things. The above necklace is my own gift to me (I’ve always loved fringe necklaces like this) but have a go and make your own.

    I was on Spanish Moss the other day and saw this poncho. Fell in love, then saw it was sold out! At least it’s in good hands. And the necklace is fierce!

    This is fabulous. Did you have a spool of leather thong? It’s hard to find long pieces like that. The finished piece is stunning. Great job!

    this is the sweetest!!! Have you considered opening a shop? You always find the best clothes and jewelry and obviously have a great diy knack! If you opened an etsy shop I would buy everything!

    Tiffany – I didn’t think it would be online too long so I jumped on it. Yes, at least you continue to see it but here this time!
