I've always been fond of tassels, lariats, tie backs and fripperies. But the old beaded tassels hold a special place in my heart. They represent an enormous amount of work for one thing, and if you are lucky enough to lay hands on some of the really old ones, the beads are amazing to behold.
Since you asked:
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."
~William Shakespeare, ca. 1595
