Blogiversary Knot Black with Blue Beads

hexagonal stellar knot in black with iridescent blue beads complete with tasselhexagonal stellar knot in black with iridescent blue beads closeup The black beads were too small, the clear beads were too big, but I think the iridescent blue beads were just right. Having finished the grey with black, I thought there's no reason I can't use different beads on each side. The visual crossover is quite minimal. That said, when it was time to bead the neck of the tassel, I wanted to use both bead colours. I like random, so I would stab the needle into either bead colour to pick up a selection of beads and then pick a random direction to sew it down. If beads wanted to sit funny or bulge, I would go back and tack them down to the tassel bundle which also helped to reinforce the binding effect of the randomly beaded neck.

Other than the bottom ear being a bit large/long in retrospect, I'm pretty pleased with the result. What do you think?
