Recently we were asked by high street fashion brand Claire’s Europe to come up with a fun, creative activity reflecting some of the big jewellery trends for spring / summer 2015 for a press event in central London. We looked at the trend forecasts for summer as well as the theme of the Claire’s event. It needed to be fun, with a summer / festival feel, so as we love festival style tassels, we decided on a quick and easy to make tassel bracelets. We provided a selection of small wooden beads in bright colours with a choice of contrasting tassels, and then it was a case of threading them on, securing the elastic with a blob of glue, and voila – a brand new bracelet in under 10 minutes! If you had a bit more time on your hands, and with a long piece of thread, the beads and tassels would make great necklaces as well.
Some of the finished products shown above. We especially like the turquoise bracelet with matching manicure! Even though they we worn with jumpers and winter coats, we tried to inject a spring / summer vibe into a frankly freezing day in mid winter! Roll on summer ….
