Pashtun, Beaded Tassel

A  finely  beaded Pashtun tassel. 

Both decorative (to us) and protective (to its maker) made to ward off the Evil Eye, note those opaque mid "blue" beads.

We carry a range of these beaded tassels in our shop, but are including a few of the best here on our website.

We simply hang them on a pin or nailfor their visual appeal, some have used them a blind pulls and chest key decor however Belly Dancers happily put them to a more active use attached to their outfits.

This one features such an restrained mix of tiny translucent and opaque glass beads, basically rich blue, red and white with attached metallic thread "bound" tassels and yellow highlights.

Probably Pashtun and from either Pakistan or Afghanistan, these were collected near the Khyber Pass, some years ago.
