You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Remove both skeins of floss from the packaging. Be careful not to unwind or tangle the floss. Set one skein aside. 
Step 2
Cut a skein in half at one of the loops (or bend) of the skein. 
Step 3
Remove one strand of floss from the skein and set aside. 
Step 4
Carefully slide one end of the skein of floss onto one of the large jump rings and move the jump ring to the center (or bend) of the floss. 
Step 5
Create the head of the tassel by wrapping the removed strand of floss around the tassel, just underneath the chain. Wrap around as many times as desired, and then tie in a knot to finish and trim ends. 
Step 6
Trim the tassel to desired length. 
Step 7
Slide an eye pin through a turquoise bead.  
Step 8
Bend the eye pin wire to a 90° angle, using pliers. Trim the wire down to ¼" in length, using wire cutters. 
Step 9
Create a simple wire loop by grasping the eye pin wire between the jaws of round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you until a small loop is formed, to complete the turquoise bead link. 
Step 10
Open the large jump ring at the top of a tassel, slide a loop of the turquoise bead link on and close the jump ring.
 
TIP: Never pull the loop “out” to open as this will cause distortion. Always twist the loop side-to-side to open and close. 
Step 11
Use a jump ring to attach the other end of the turquoise bead to an earring hook.  
Step 12
Repeat Steps 2-11 for the second earring.
