Tatted Concoction bracelet
Not sure if I like the bracelet, but the process was certainly a learning experience.
I learned how to put a bead into the center of a ring from the back side. Didn't want to! But it was needed for all the crazy turns in the design.
Put the bead onto the shuttle thread, and secure with a paper clip. Add another paper clip just under the bead at the bottom, to save a space for joining later. Then, tat a chain, snugging the double stitches together as you progress. When you've tatted halfway around the bead, remove the paper clip at the top of the bead, and join (just a normal join) and continue tatting the chain until it reaches the bottom of the bead. Remove the bottom paper clip and do a lock join.
