It's beautful. The person that rejected it is an idiot.

Re: Picture of my beaded tassel
Shirley, your tassel is just gorgeous!  I can identify the beads, but I'm  
wondering what type of fiber you used.  It has a lovely sheen...



Re: Picture of my beaded tassel
Thank you.
That is the annoying part that I had to send away for the threads, an  
expense I would otherwise not occurred.
I do not like cotton for my tassels because it does not have any swish  
or zing to it. So I use viscose, rayon, silk for it. Sometimes I use  
that knitted stockinet rayon.  Trouble is they are hard to find and are  
not cheap.

I saw the UK bead guild making tassels at a show and they were not using  
a mould like I do. They just got a hank of thread, folded it over and  
tied it at the top and then started doing freeform peyote over it. Then  
they cut the bottom of the skirt level. Looked very nice and I asked  
about the threads, some of them were spaced died.
They sent me to a stall where they were being sold.
I blanched at the price of them, they were 20 pounds or more for  1  
hank.
That is nearly half of one weeks retirement pension for me. So the  
threads stayed on the stall.

Perhaps another time when I have save up to go to the show.

Re: Picture of my beaded tassel
Ahhhh...I wondered whether it was silk.  I didn't guess viscose or rayon,  
though.

BTW:  When I asked what fiber you used, I was thinking in terms of beauty,  
not functionality.  Your tassle is very, very pretty.  You really do deserve  
to find a buyer who will appreciate not only its beauty but also your  
thoughtful design (e.g., the "swish").  



Re: Picture of my beaded tassel
Thank you for your kind words.

Re: Picture of my beaded tassel
Thank you.

It amazing to think that the jacket started out as two bags of random  
carded fluff, one being merino wool and the other alpaca.
When I saw it at the spinning supply place I knew I had to have it and  
no idea what I would do with it.

That is soooo pretty.
Can't understand how anybody could not want it.

That woman did not think so.

I am feeling sad today, my brother in law died this morning.

Shirley,

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother in law.

I wish there was something I could do for you but I'll send you my
thoughts.

Re: Picture of my beaded tassel
Allow me to echo Kandice's sentiments -- the tassel is beautiful, and  
shows true talent.  That's almost impossible to find today, when most  
items are made by the millions and sold in big box retail stores.  
Poor lady doesn't realize quality when she sees it.
