Voila, le biscornu

It is finished.
I was so sure I had swarovski crystal beads in this shade of green, but they are nowhere to be found so I opted for simplicity.   The centre bead is jade from a keyring given me many years ago by a friend.  Why waste a jade bead on a keyring?
And the back?   Well that is plain.
I don't know much French but I do know that everything is either feminine or masculine.  A biscornu?  Must be masculine I think, with all those stick-out corners :-)

  4. It turned out beautiful, Margaret! The jade bead is a perfect accent. Anything that edgy must be masculine. LOL.

  6. It looks lovely! The jade bead is perfect. I don't know if biscornu is masculine or feminine but I do know it translates to a "wonky" which is not so attractive as a biscornu!

  7. Margaret, you often send me down rabbit holes in search of knowledge.... And the answer to today's trivia search......In French biscornu is an adjective, not a noun, so sadly we theoretically can't call it le or la. If it is describing a masculine word it is spelt biscornu, and for a feminine word it is biscornue. Maybe we could alter the spelling depending on how well they sew together and how curvy the corners are!
