Silver Rope Tassel Necklace

I love all things nautical, and to spruce up my Spring/Summer wardrobe I am sharing my latest tassel necklace with a maritime feel. I love the simplicity of this necklace. The large silver bead and cord ends finish it off just beautifully. You can make this easy craft no time at all. Great gift idea. Here’s how it’s done~

DIY Rope Tassel Necklace



Rope Tassel

make a tassel with upholstrey cord

Cut a 10 inch piece of Upholstery cord. Unravel the cord and separate the layers. I used only one section. Smooth out the fibers.

DIY Rope tassel

Place a 4 inch piece of crochet thread in the center of the cord and tie tightly in a double knot.

Capped rope tassel

Fold the tassel in half and pinch the tassel tight at the knot. Add E6000 glue to the inside of the silver cord end. Push the tassel inside the cord end. I used a sharp stick to shove it all the way inside so it would be nice and snug. Let it dry. Maximum-strength bond for this glue is 24 hours.

eye pin to connect bead

Insert the 2 inch eye pin inside the bead.

Eye pin connector

Trim off excess wire.


Round nose plier eye pin connector

Curve the wire around to make a loop using round nosed pliers. Hook it to the tassel and then pinch the wire shut. Attach the other end to the Toggle on the rope.

Rope Necklace

attach tassel with Toggle clasp

Cut the rope to desired length of necklace, approx 20 inches. Mine is 18 inches finished.

Toggle clasp as connector

Add the ring part of a toggle clasp to the rope.

Finsh necklace with tied rope

To attach the ends of the necklace without using a clasp, I decided to wrap the ends. Place the ends next to each other and place a strip of hot glue about 1 1/2 inches to bond the two ropes together.

Rope tied clasp

Then wrap the ends with crochet cording, tie it off and hot glue the ends down.

Trim rope tied clasp

Trim the rope ends and attach the tassel.
