A Suncatcher

I have a need to make a few suncatchers for a few 
friends, but this time I wanted something of my own 
creation, so I started....I wanted a heart in the center, 
and I wanted to use a clear bingo chip(or tiddly wink).
So I enclosed it in 2 hearts, one on each side(needs 
work!).  Then I tatted around the outside of the chip 
adding picots for later joining, and joining to the hearts.
Next, I added chains with beads and it was looking 
 Next I decided I wanted 2 rings to join to each bead.
I had a couple of thoughts in mind for the chains, but 
not being sure I just went with the same all the way 
around(which made a beautiful and colorful wave!), 
but I continued and then strung it to the bangle 
bracelet.  Here it is in the sunshine!!
 Here is where you can see the heart!!
 And this is just to show off the Lizbeth size 40 
Butterfly Breeze thread!!  :)
It's looks and a bit ruffly, but it's pretty!!  :)
The learning process continues!!  :)
Happy tatting and have a wonderful weekend!!  :)

You're so clever! It has worked out really well. Pretty in that thread too, and I love the heart in the middle.
