A last minute tatted Birthday gift

I found out a sweet senior friend had a birthday Friday.
Well...since her family claimed her for the day, I 
decided to work on a gift for her.
This is Yarnplayer's Newcastle Necklace from her 
book Tatted Jewelry.
It's tatted with her own size 40 HDT Tigereye
and size 40 Lizbeth black.  I have tiny black beads
added to the HDT tatting, and goldish bronzish
beads to the black tatting.  I wanted it to go well
with this beautiful glass heart I had.  The heart
looks like tiger stripes so I thought it was great
that the HDT was called Tigereye.
I only had 2 black jump rings and couldn't
find any at the store so I used these black
wires used for large beads to try and create
some homemade connectors(not great, but
I believe they will work).
 The tatting is a little light for the heart, but we will
figure something out.  I can't wait to see her face!!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!!  :)
