2017 25 Motif Challenge # 10

This is not terrible hard, but I started and made 
a major mistake of joining all the large rings as 
well as the small rings which was not working.
It's tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Black and Rainbow 
Splash. Colors inspired by Tatting Tatsright
from Facebook. The pattern is here: 
It's the bottom pattern, although I am planning 
on trying the top pattern when possible.  :)
I also worked on a few other things today.
I was trying to tat a small Ice Drop with the small
clear gem, but it kept slipping out of the tatting 
so I tatted chains with tiny beads around the front
to tighten it a bit.  ;)  The Peacock Blue pieces 
on top were supposed to be for it, but..... they 
were not large enough so I thought some young 
girl would like them for earrings, so I have to 
assemble them.
 And, I am working on a lanyard for a friend.  I have 
failed twice at doing what I wanted to do, so I decided 
to wing-it and just tat!!!  I will post it when it's done...
maybe.  ;)
Have a wonderful weekend, and 
Happy Tatting!!!!!!!!  :)

I love the color contrast of the black with the brights! Is that a hand-dyed thread? It's tough to get a pattern to work with those smaller glass gems.

Love that black and brights motif! I hope we will see the lanyard, good luck with it. And getting the small ice drop to 'stick'.

Wonderful motif with the black and variegated threads. Black thread can be difficult to work with but always makes the other colors pop.
I love the look of the tiny beads in the Ice Drop. You solved the problem nicely!
