DIY: Tassel Knot Chain Earrings

Ok so full disclosure: This post was inspired by an episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yes I’m a fan of entire Bravo TV Housewives  franchise. I watch all of them, except Orange County. Don’t judge me! Anywho, I was watching last weeks episode of RHOATL when these earrings on the lobes of Ms. Sheree Whitfield caught my eye. They were all chain and dangling down here neck. They were fierce! My inner diva was turned on and I was inspired to make my own…

Materials: Chains, 2 Jump Rings, 2 Earring Findings

Sip the earring finding onto the jump ring. Cut your chain to be about 8-10 inches long.

Slide your chain through the jump ring.

Knot the top of the earring, finding and all, around the chain and pull tight to secure.

Honey, you gotta love a pair of earrings that move in the wind!

Anytime I wear chains it brings out my inner Rihanna. My inner rocker. They edgy and fun. Not necessarily something I’d wear every day, but with the right outfit they’re the perfect match.

    • I picked them up at my local jewelry supply store. I spent a total of $7 on the whole project. Including chain, jump rings, etc…

  13. OMG, I totally saw that episode (I live right outside of the ATL and can’t get enough of the show, even though I don’t think it depicts the most fabulous of folks in the city- still addicting and fun trash to watch!!) and was obsessed with those earrings!!! What a clever idea on a DIY project. Love love your site!

    Lurrrrrrrve. Try it with bright strips of fabric mixed in, too. It’s fabulous.
    (See for my take)
    Or you could do a chanel-y pair with gold chain and a hint of black leather/double sided pleather.
