This is a whimsical construction of black plastic cable ties, the kind you find at the hardware store, and tiny doughnut shaped green glass beads, the kind you find at the bead shop.
There is a cultural distance between these two shopping venues. I'll leave it to another post to discuss this or you may comment if you like...
Add more beads to each tie increasing the segment length: -|||||||- to -|||||||||||||||||||||-
Add additional ties to form a nine or ten or even eleven part polygon.
Design variation: Place an uneven numbers of beads on each tie, and color of beads and ties.
For the people who do numbers theory the ratio of beads to chords might be interesting. Post your suggestions.
Lastly if you have an idea on how to gracefully terminate the ties please post a comment.
