The jellyfish tassel has a special hollow, self supporting structure. The body and the tentacles are beaded, the oral arms are crocheted, so basic crochet knowledge required to create the jellyfish tassel. No special beads project. I used Japanese Toho seed beads in two sizes (11/0 and 15/0) and Czech Koralex (Starman) fire-polished beads (size 4 mm). As the products of different manufacturers may be of different sizes, I can only guarantee success with the beads I have named if you work with the jellyfish tassel beading tutorial.
I created the lantern version of the Jellyfish tassel, so you can bead a fabulous, completely maintenance-free aquarium with magical luminous jellyfishes!
You can find the tutorial of the luminous jellyfishes (the jellyfish lanterns) in the tutorial as well.

The beading pattern contains the Jellyfish pendant and Jellyfish lantern pattern step by step with illustrations, phase photos and explanations of each step, material list, color list, and finished pictures of the pendant/lantern.
