A tatted Christmas gift

My friend, Cheryl(a beginner tatter) fell in love with Marilee's(Yarnplayer) Beguile Necklace from her Up and Tat 'Em book.  I tried to find beads and rings to match the ones Marilee used, but I couldn't so...I used a different color scheme.  The thread is size 20 Lizbeth Ecru, the beads are Czech glass beads 11/0 seed beads Metallic silver(although, they are a gold color), and the rings are a shell-like material that compliments the colors very well.
 I tried my best to get a good picture because it is really beautiful in real life!!  :)
Cheryl says she really loves it!!  :)

This is truly a beautiful piece, looks like a vintage chocker. Was going to wear it to my dad's funeral but I have to move the hook over to make it smaller. Thank you Sue.
