Slowly getting my "Nouveau" pattern written

Just a peek at an in-progress photo for my "Nouveau" earrings design. I did some tweaking on the original so it would hang together more securely. Several requests came in for the pattern, so that prioritized it on my "to do list". As it's an earrings, necklace, and bracelet set, it'll take a while to finish all of it, but I wanted to show that I have done some work on it.

The sample is shown in my current favorite, scrumptious shade of aqua beads, combined with size 20 Lizbeth in very pale yellow #612. It's summer-y! I'll need to do a whole set in this combo.

You may recall my original black Nouveau necklace:
So, in between other commitments, I'll be writing up the pattern, taking in-progress photos, and trying to get it to be easy enough for other tatters to follow, although like many of my designs, it's a challenge.

That necklace is just beautiful! It is such lovely, even work - well done. The result is beautiful, and so unique. I've tried to tat with my great-grandmother's metal tatting bobbin, but I just can't get the hang of it. Then, I see work like this and I get all enthusiastic about trying again. So, thanks! I will keep your work in mind as I fumble along. :-)

GREAT news! This design is fabulous. It seems to be completely out of my reach, I'm not that gifted, and yet I can't wait to have the pattern - no pressure on you of course ;)
Tahnks for making it available.
