I just noticed seeing them side by side, that both the men
have hats, and both the ladies have head wraps! (what would be the proper
name for those?)

Finally I am adding another tassel necklace
with the largest bead pictured below.
I did struggle with this design,

I ended up with this, and I do love the bead with the ribbon.
