diy mixed media tassel earrings

Keeping in this week’s unofficial geode jewelry theme, I’m really pumped to share this mixed media tassel earring DIY with you. I had the idea to do an earring like this after discovering mixed media jewelry designer Nikki Couppee on Instagram. This California-based artist combines beautiful stones, bold colors, and contrasting textures to create pieces that are nothing less than works of art.

When I came across these tinsel tassels, pink druzy slabs and green glitter beads on Woman Shops World, this DIY was a done deal. Use these super easy instructions to mix and match your choice of playful elements and create earrings that are all your own.

P.S. Woman Shops World is offering 10% off orders $100+ exclusively to Neon Tea Party readers with code WSWNEON10! Happy crafting 🙂

YOU’LL NEED:

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Trim tassels to 2.5″
  2. Lay out beads and tassel to your liking on each pink druzy slab
  3. Squeeze a very small dot of glue on the back of each decorative element, place on pink slab and press firmly. Let dry.
  4. Glue earring post to the back of each earring, ideally covering the bead holes. Let dry.
  5. Rock your awesome new earrings like a boss!

    Hi love your work. Am wondering about your bag, is that for sale or is it a kit. Did you make it.

      Hi Joan, thank you so much for the kind words!! The bag is in fact vintage. 🙁 But I’ll be you can get a silk purse, some fun charms, sequins, seed beads and needle & thread and DIY yourself a fun little clutch! If you do attempt it and have any questions, feel free to reach out if I could be helpful! Enjoy your weekend! xx Marisa

  • I did something really scary, you guys. I recorded this video (with @quinn.tempest's expert guidance), put money behind it and sent it out into the world as a sponsored post. Oy! 😱 If it pops up on your feed, please show it some love!!!
.⠀
And since I'm posting the video here as well, I should probablyyy let you know that you can access our totally free pom pom lesson where I share all my expert tips and tricks to making a perfect pom pom every time via link in bio. THAT video is pretty freaking sweet. 💥⠀
