This 6 minute video shows several ways of working with beads, while I am tatting my Dream pattern, as a pendant. The thread I'm using is size 10 Lizbeth which I hand dyed. The seed beads are size 8/0.
Note: the one-sided leaf bead is strung onto the thread shiny side down, in order to make the shiny side come up correctly in the finished pendant. That works for this pattern!! I don't know how to make those one-sided beads come right side up in all circumstances...sigh.
I hope you enjoy this video. Be sure to turn your speakers on, the tatting is accompanied by music from SmartSound.
