Wondering What To Do With a Tassel?
Our Dazzle-it product line has a special blog hop today featuring the work of many fabulous jewelers, crafters and designers!
Our new Faux Suede Tassels are the stars of this blog hop!
All the designer/artists in this blog hop received a “Dazzle-it Blog Hop Kit.” Each of the individual Dazzle-it colours was sent to one designer so they may have had white, yellow, green or even hot pink. They did not get to choose their main colour, it was randomly shipped. They were given an assortment of tassels, but I asked them to try and focus on using the one special colour set in their kit.
We could not resist sending the matching Faux Suede Lace cording when we planned this hop. The colour options are just wonderful! The designers also received several different new closures and clasps which I will be featuring in additional posts next month!
You’ll find a huge collection of inspired projects by heading over to the Dazzle-it blog!
Fire and Ice Agate Beads – Blue Sky
The stars of this necklace are the extremely beautiful Fire and Ice Agate beads.
Blue Sky is available in three sizes 10ml, 12ml, 16ml, I simply strung them all to create this necklace.
The beads really require no additional embellishment. I made this shell pendant myself and it went so well with the colours that I added it. I also included two of our new white tassels to balance the necklace.
The tassels are also new and available in so many great colours!
My last step was to select a closure and I chose this new hook and eye set.
New Fire and Ice Agate
The new Fire and Ice Agate Semi-Precious Facetted Dye Beads are stealing the show on this new necklace.
This necklace uses three of the new products we launched this month: Fire and Ice Agate beads, Faux Suede Tassels and Fancy Chain.
The necklace really just made itself. The
The carnelian agate colour really caught my eye. It has wonderful rust and white colours running throughout the bead. Each agate colour comes in three sizes: 10mm, 12mm and 16mm
My colour choices for Fire and Ice are gorgeous!
I used red and white faux suede tassels.
I had several options for my chain. This is our new Fancy Chain collection.
Three strands per side of Fancy Chain gave this necklace a very rich and finished look.
Tassels and Fancy Chain Get Instant Glam
I just love everything that Fernando DaSilva used to create this new necklace! I hope it inspires you as much as it does me. Now I really want to start adding our new faux suede tassels to my design projects! Here is what Fernando used to create this necklace.
The new silver leaf fancy chain. I see Fernando combined two strands to make the one thick chain.
A closer look.

The complete tassel collection is just wonderful. Think of all the colour options!
A Closer Look At Fernando’s Gold Winery Necklace
This necklace is featured on our new banner (with matching earring) to celebrate the launch of our new line of faux suede tassels. Fernando named it “The Gold Winery.”
He carefully selected with our team: pre-made suede tassels, pre-made chain tassels, fantastic laser cut filigree hand assembled fancy chain and one of the best clasps on the market right now…exclusive to Metal Complex. I’ll give you a link to each!
The faux suede tassels are easy to see here.
The chain tassels are here.
The new fancy chain with filigree leaves is here.
Both tassel collections work beautifully together. Let’s not forget the gorgeous kumihimo braid Fernando used as a foundation for this necklace. His rattail colours are divine.
We have an exclusive new collection of glue in end caps as well. This hook and eye style will be perfect for your kumihimo and other stringing projects.
I am planning dozens of different ways to use these tassels!
The Tassel Trend
Everywhere I look I see a tassel! Have you noticed this trend as well? It would seem that everything looks a little more finished and beautiful with the addition of either a small or large tassel.
So I am thrilled to showcase the new faux suede tassel collection that is now at John Bead!
Fernando DaSilva designed this new set of jewelry to introduce the line to you. The tassels combined with kumihimo and our new fancy chain looks so luxurious. These pieces will definitely take you from day time to night time. We’ll be featuring lots of tassels in the weeks ahead.
