My apologies for being so late posting the January challenge; I'm so off schedule. Since it's a new month and a new year, your challenge is to make something new. You can use new beads/materials, new techniques, a new tutorial, a new color that you haven't used before - just anything that is new to you.
My friend brought me a few of these fabulous Mackintosh rose beads last summer, so I guess they count as new (I had completely forgotten about the bag full of beads she brought me). And I actually never made tassels.
Not a complicated design, but I have other things on my mind at the moment and ran out of time! Sorry for the picture being so big, but the last few weeks pictures have always disappeared if I tried to resize in the post. Not sure why.
I don't know why I never made tassels, but I really like those rose beads and wanted to make something with them and with the drops. I love those seed beads, too. I'll be sad when they are gone. They were still from the lot I won years ago.
