2015 25 Motif Challenge # 23 Atom

This is Yarnplayer's Atom Pendant from her Up and Tat 'Em book.
Well, I finished it.  It does not do the pattern justice, and 
I know I had to have made mistakes somewhere, but I really like it.
I plan to sew it on something instead of using it as a pendant
since I used size 40 Lizbeth Raspberry Pink Med.(instead of size 20),
and the center bead is 6mm instead of the 8mm in the pattern,
and I can't even tell you what size the smaller beads are.
Because the thread is finer the pendant is very floppy,
so I think it will look great sewn onto something, which
will help it hold it's shape better!!
I love the color!!  :)
Oh, I survived working with the 6 shuttles!!!
Sorry, the scanner had trouble with the beads so the 
picture is a bit blurry.
Well...only 2 more challenge pieces to finish last year's challenge!!!
Have a wonderful day and happy tatting!!!  :)

That is a gorgeous color! Size 40 seems more floppy to me also. I guess that's why they make different sizes!

And thank you for mentioning the source for the pattern! I've seen photos of it on pintrest but none had a source and it had been driving me nuts. Adding to the Christmas list.

God's Kid said...

Thank you Sarah!! :) I am glad you now have a source!! :)

Beautiful! I have always admired this pattern and never tatted it. You did a great job!

God's Kid said...

Thank you Fox!! :) I have admired it too and bought the book just so I could tat it and didn't even try until I forced myself to complete last year's challenge! :)
