Make a cute Boho Necklace for your Summer Wardrobe
This past spring break I went to Charleston S.C. on vacation. That is where I saw the cutest earrings on a tourist while walking the streets shopping. I decided to recreate them from memory, you can see the tutorial on how I made those wood bead tassel earrings in a previous post.
I love the look of natural wood. I found some really cool wood rings on Amazon and at first, I had planned on making earrings out of them. That post will be later, I still have a great idea for those up my sleeve. But for now, I was playing around with one of the fun tassels I made for the earring post.
I used a large jump ring to add the tassel and then I used some beige suede cording for the necklace part. Super simple materials and it makes such a pretty statement. You could also add more tassels for a whole other look to this necklace. Let’s put one together!
How to Make a Wood Bead Tassel Hoop Necklace
- Wood Bead: (1) 25mm/1-inch, (1) 9mm
- Acrylic Gold Bead (2) 5mm
- 1 Eye Pin Finding
- Beading Pliers: Round Nose Pliers, Wire Cutting Pliers
- Embroidery Floss: 1/2 Skein per Tassel Light Blue/Green
- Hot Glue & Gun
- Suede Cording: Beige
- Wood Hoop: 2 inch
- Jump Ring: 13mm Gold
Make the tassel: See the Wood Bead Tassel Earrings post for instructions on how to make the tassel.
Add the jump ring to the tassel and place on the wood ring. Tighten jump ring with pliers.
Cut a 45-inch strip of suede cording. Try hanging the cording around your neck to see the length you will need for me it is 45 inches. You can cut it a little larger to have enough to work with. Loop the suede cord through the hoop.
Insert ends of cording into the loop and pull it tight.
Tie the ends of the cording into a simple knot. Adjust the length by trimming the cording if needed. Trim off excess cording and that’s it! You have one stylish boho necklace! It really is so simple, yet super cute.
