Flower Tassel Earrings DIY

When I saw these tassels in Instanbul's heavenly crafters' market, I knew I had to buy at least a handful to use for whatever project I might dream about and fast forward to warmer seasons, I saw some bohemian tassel earrings and learned they will be a hit this summer. 

The playful child in me knew it was high time to shake these a little bit. 
To make the earrings I used mini crocheted flowers (pattern below), jump rings, pearl beads and earring hooks. And, of course, the tassels. I still believe, tiny fabric flowers would be much prettier, but I didn't have any at hand. 

I attached the beads on the tassel's neck and then glued the flowers (this could be done the other way round), attached the hook on the tassel's loop and that's it. A fast gift if you are in a hurry to whip one out. 

The pattern for the flowers - I used doubled silken embroidery thread and 0.8 mm hook. Almost lost my eyesight. 

Ch 5 and join to make a ring. Sc 5 in ring. Ch 4, sc in next stitch. Repeat this for all stitches - there would be 5 petals (chains) in the end. Cut thread, tie knot, weave ends.
