Persephone’s Bell Tassel- ribbon work

Persephone's Bell Tassel

Persephone's Bell Tassel

I love tassels or furniture jewelry if you will. I like to create them from unusual components, and have hung them throughout my house. This example is from my Persephone’s Bell pattern and definitely belongs in a fairy tale.

The top of the tassel is a dyed gourd with the stem still attached, too cute! The gourd is embellished with French wire ribbon leaves and a silk cord is used for hanging.

The gourd was pierced at intervals to hang the tassels and vines below the opening. French wire ribbons were formed into gorgeous fuchsias and hang from ruched Hanah silk bias ribbons. Flowers made from Hanah silk bias ribbons are hung from wrapped Artistic wire, and further enhanced with beads and charms.

This is a pretty addition to hang from any fairy garden trellis!

Happy Stitching! Christen
