Tassels… these are the next big thing in jewellery for the summer season. This growing trend has come from the states and is big with lots of celebs such as the Jenner’s and Kardashian’s and we just can’t get enough. Coachella festival has helped us to see a tassel revival and tassels in the world of fashion can be seen on shoes, handbags, jackets, purses and even on the runways of the biggest fashion houses.
We love Kendal Jenner’s recent Mango campaign featuring a tassel skirt and although often thought of as straight out the 70’s tassels are making a big comeback.
So let’s look at jewellery. The possible uses of tassels in jewellery is vast and they blend into the summer festival theme perfectly.

Why not use them as a feature pendant for necklaces, to make bold statement earrings with gorgeous gemstones, as charms on bright bracelets as pictured here
Or alternately they can also be used as keyrings and bag charms.
