25 Motif Challenge #22 & #23



Well I reverted back to my "old" ways with tatting YES I caved and went to the needle ONLY BECAUSE I wanted something different I have had an idea for this kind of necklace for awhile and REALLY REALLY wanted to tat it... This set took me about a total of 6 hours to complete its made with size 20 thread and seed beads.

Pattern for the necklace is as follows

*SCH: 6 / 6 (before re threading the needle add 3 beads and pull through)
Repeat * 9 more times (you will have 10 split chains total)
**SCH: 8 / 8 (before re threading the needle add 3 beads and pull through)
Repeat ** 9 more times (you will now have 20 split chains total)

Your necklace and earings are wonderful! And I don't think it matters which method you use, needle or shuttle, it's tatting! (I use a shuttle, know the basics of needle)
