The designs are all for tatted jewelry with beads. I used Lizbeth thread in size 20 for many of the projects, but some are done in size 10. There is a supply list given with each project. Tatted jewelry with beads is more particular about thread size than most other tatting. For instance, you can tat a doily pattern in any thread size that you want, and you'll get a larger or smaller doily, but the pattern still works, regardless. With tatted jewelry that includes beads in the design, you need to be thinking more like a jeweler than a lace-maker. The sizes of the beads and the tatting need to fit together well. Have fun choosing any color combos you like for your projects!
