I am wearing my Christmas present today and tatting!!! :)

 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!!! :)

That is a beautiful necklace, love the colour and the shell with the butterfly
Great top certainly a good advert for tatting, I forcast more tatters after you wear it.

I wish I had a sweat shirt like yours! The necklace is very pretty. I don't think you should worry too much if it swirls, bigger beads will do that.
