Bracelet in blue and white


This is another bracelet experiment inspired by a vintage edging pattern. The thread is Lizbeth size 20 in color # 656 Wedgewood Dark, which is a more intense color when viewed in person than the photos show. I added white seed beads size 11/0 and 4mm crystal pearls, and closed with a medium toggle clasp that measures about 10mm across. Personally, I find this type of clasp easiest to put on, both with attaching to the tatting, and in putting it on my wrist.

This pattern had a picot on the other side of the chain at one point, to be joined to a ring later. Funny how I had never run across this issue before in over 30 years of tatting, and now it's shown up twice is less than 2 weeks. Anyway, I dealt with it using the technique described in a previous post.

I'm having a good time turning vintage designs into beaded lace bracelets, so there may be more to come!
