Tassels in jewelry aren't just a trend, they're a staple! Tassels as ornaments date back to the ancient empires, for obvious reasons: they're fun to wear, and they can carry meaning. Here are 10 creative ways to use tassels in your handmade jewelry, from the tassels experts at WSW:
- Tassel Talisman: Tassels are fun as decorative components, but they can be meaningful ones too! Live more intentionally by crafting a talisman: a good luck token that you can wear and see throughout your day, that will remind you of the magic in life.

- Little Reminders: create a piece of jewelry using a special tassel color story to remind you of a special place, memorable sunsets, to relax, or breathe, etc. Set the intention and use your tassels to remind you.
