Yes, I did manage to find the beads I needed at the annual Bead Show in Milwaukee, along with some I probably don't need - you know how it is.
The tatted jewelry that I was wearing did receive some admiring looks, compliments, and questions! "Is that micro-macrame?" "Tatting? What is that?" "Oh, a knotted lace form - very cool!"
Anyway, now I will be able to finish the red tatted necklace that I am working on with the white beads. I'll post photos soon of this experiment with a string of beaded mock rings.
This tatted motif (in my HDT "Fern") is one of the smallest snowflakes from Jon's new book. She has very innovative designs, beautifully explained and diagrammed. Highly recommended!
