A WORD ABOUT TASSELS
A Tassel is the purest form of embellishment- decoration for decoration’s sake. Consisting consisting of a head and a skirt, a tassel is typically made of silk, cotton, linen or wood. other materials such as jute or beading are also used. The tassels head is constructed from a wooden form or bead covered with thread and tatting (a lace of loop and knotted thread). Flat, dome, ball, arrow or rectangular can be used to shape the head. The skirt extends below the head, and can be made of bullion fringe or cut or looped yarn. A dangling tassel draws the eye to whatever feature it is accenting. It is often centered on a valance or a swag. It can also punctuate the notches of a cornice. A tassel can be a visual counterbalance to to the long tail of an asymmetrical treatment. or it can function as a shade pull. When you attach a tassel to a thick cord, it becomes a luxurious tieback.
