For the sample on the left I used strips of different dyed fabrics and a crown of bugle beads,
while the second one was edged with free scalloping stitches and has a head made by a bought Chinese knot.
For this sample I wrapped some dyed paper silk I still had from Summer School in 2006 (remember?) around some spiky fibers I found in a mattress shop, which I dabbed in golden acrylic at the ends to make a sort of "beading". The copper wire has two different thicknesses and I obtained the spiralling by means of a gizmo device.
