One Month Blogiversary

roll of black, hexagonal hawk's eye beads, and black seed beads It’s my one month blogiversary! With only a little bit of cheating, I’ve posted everyday. So, to celebrate I’m giving away a tassel with a hawk’s eye bead in the centre and seed bead details. I was also thinking to give away the materials I used to make the tassel (a spool of cord, a selection of beads, and tassel fringe). Should it be all one prize or two? What do you think? I’ll be documenting the creation of the tassel on the blog, of course. To enter to win the tassel, just leave a comment with a valid email (or register and post) on this post. Entries will be accepted until Feb 28, 2009 and a winner selected at random declared shortly thereafter.

I’m going with the facet idea.

Globe Knot Beads Part 2

pink globe knot with 14 facets The offspring asked for a pink knot. Here is one. This is a globe knot with 14 facets. 14SGZ to be precise. Generally speaking, the more facets, the more I like it, but that's not how you start people off. I actually timed myself this time. From start to where I'm reasonably happy to leave it alone is approximately 40 minutes. The slight football shape to the core bead is bugging me. The next core bead will be more round if I can find one without too much digging.
