A Tassel For Finn
This is a tassel I made for a commission. My friend's cat recently died and she wanted to make a memorial to him in the form of a tassel. She is a belly dancer so I used some vintage middle eastern findings and even took a tassel made of wool that was probably used for decorating a camel and took it apart to make new tendrils. I had her make some postage stamps of her cat so I could use the images and solder them into a charm. Some of the tendrils I felted myself with wool roving.
