I came up with this design recently after acquiring some large gold chains. The chain links looked kind of sparse on their own so I decided to weave leather cord through them à la Chanel. The tassel is made from assorted chains- this DIY is a great way to make use of your broken necklaces!
|[Take the leather and weave it in and out through the chain. Leave a 5 inch section of cord at the beginning and a 5 inch section of chain at the end]|
|[Thread the end of the cord through the chain to connect the necklace together]|
|[Take the ends of the suede and weave them through the bottom part of the necklace to create a tassel]|
|[Drape the assorted chains over the tassel]|
|[Cut a section of embroidery floss and tightly tie around the top of the tassel. Wrap around a few times and knot again]|
