For those who don't know, I received a
fabulous sweatshirt for Christmas(in the
center of the picture below). :)
And the beads on the left near the ladybug
which are in this tatted necklace(and were in
my last one also).
Here is the close-up. This is a shell necklace which
has matching earrings(which I will be added tatting to also).
I have to sew in the ends and add a clasp, but for the
most part it's finished. :)
This necklace pendant has a whole in the center and
I wanted it to have a tatted piece so, I placed a free
swinging butterfly inside. Our daughter really likes
it, so I am sure someone else will also!!! :)
Here is a close-up of how I finished the chains.
I tatted the main parts with beads, but...
for the shoulders and back I used rings and
chains to the beads and tatting wouldn't rub
against the neck.
The beads and tatting kind of swirl a bit,
but I am going to try and tame that with
blocking if it's possible. ;)
Have a wonderful Palm Sunday weekend,
and happy tatting!!! :)
