Tassel canvas II

Continuing with the tassel canvas, the tassel on the left is done simply in the chain stitch in a dark champagne-colored candlelight. 

The beads at the top of the next tassel are done in combinations of French knots and cashmere stitches.  Then the fun--area of turkey work produce a wonderful fluffy effect.  Then the bottom of the tassel is done in alternating slanted gobelin rows interspersed with continental.  The "dangles" are French knots again.  Quite a pleasing effect.
