We all love our tassel jewelry, however are you finding it difficult to keep the tassels in great shape? If so, you are not alone. It's only natural for the tassels to become a little frayed or wrinkled with use.

Here are a few tips to keep your tassels in top shape!

 

1. How to prevent your tassels from fraying?

 

Use a stand to keep your tassels upright. We  place our tassel earrings and tassel bracelets on stands to keep our tassels lifted from the ground and for gravity to do its trick. We find that if we lay tassel jewelry flat, they sometimes loose its straightness so it's best to keep them upright.

2. How to fix tassels that become kinked or frayed?

 

Our first point provides a preventative tip to keep your tassels in great shape, however this may not always be possible. Here is a great tip that one of our customers pointed out to us. She lightly dampens the tassels with water and blow dries them straight! What a great idea and one that I personally have done myself!

3.  How to travel with your tassel jewelry is a common question our customers ask us.

  

We recommending wrapping the tassels in cling wrap tightly and put them in a zip lock bag for a bit of extra protection. This ensures the tassels keep its shape and ready to wear when you arrive at your destination. Better yet, if you can bring a stand for your tassel pieces and hang them overnight, you are set for success.
