Stacking jewelry has to be one of our favorite trends and we are never letting it go! Layering delicate pieces together creates a new type of statement necklace and provides all different types of textures and colors. This is what inspired us to create this stacked fringe necklace. Wear it with a white dress for summer to your BAE’s bachelorette or a summer BBQ.

We cut four 24-inch strands of each color floss. Feel free to choose your own length and number of strings. The more strings, the denser your fish tail braid will be.

Fishtail braids are one of the easiest braids to do. Separate your strings into two even piles, then take the outer most string on the right and place it on the inner left section. Then take the outer left string and place it on the inner right section. We moved two strings at a time when working with this braid.

At first you won’t see a pattern. Keep moving those strands from outside to inside!

Knot both ends to keep the braid in place.

Cut a piece of leather cord that measures 22 inches. String 30 small gold beads onto the strand.

Tassel time! Wrap around two fingers about ten times. Use an extra piece of string to tie the loops together. Snip the loop at the end to create fringe and place the knotted side into the cord end. Use pliers to secure tassel in place. Then trim up all the loose pieces!
