A bracelet

I had these beads which I bought from Fire Mountain 
Gems a long time ago and wanted to make something 
with them.  The label on the beads says  BEAD GLASS 
SEA OPAL 4MM.  I had Lizbeth size 40 Coral Splash 
on a shuttle already so....I tatted.  I used Elaine P. Gan's 
method of adding beads and tatted around each, then 
decided I wanted it wider and just started tatting.  
As you can see, it needs re-working, but I like this 
one anyway.  It's also too big for me, but it's mine.  :)
 Here's a close-up.
Have a wonderful week filled with tatting!!! :)

That's really lovely - makes me think of little flowers with leaves.

Love where your shuttles took you !!! Beautiful outer row :-)
In the close-up, though, they look like little faces with large goggled eyes ;-P

Lovely beads, very nice pattern looks fiddly

Thank you all very much!! :)
muskaan, I can see that.
Margaret, the center is fiddly, but the rest is ok. The outer part is almost like tatting one of my beaded garlands with the inclusion of rings. :)
