Inspired by the use of thread, I decided to try and make something with waxed Irish linen threads. I recently expanded my stash of waxed linen so I had a rainbow to choose from! I ended up using a mix of teal and greens in four shades. Having some bright blue mixed in would have been more true to the inspiration, but I don't have any of that in my stash yet... next order!
I had lots of ideas of how to use the threads and at first thought I'd do more of a true tassel look with a cone of some sort... But then I changed my mind and decided on a simpler approach and just tied the strands around a jump ring in a big lark's head knot. For an extra punch of color I added a table cut Czech glass flower in avocado green. That has nothing to do with the inspiration, but I love the way they look with the colorful threads so I'm going to call artistic license on this one! I really wanted to something more geometric, but just didn't have anything that worked in my stash and no time to shop.
