I got bored of snowflakes. They are all beautiful but I was missing my pieces.
I had an idea haunting me since quite a while: to combine the tatting with beads with the Ankars. You can say it is nonsense, it is already done, Ankars is anyway tatting with beads. And you may be true, I could not say, I did not find in the little information about the AnkarsI found this kind working with beads.
Neverdeless, I worked this necklace with those 2 ideas combined. The white pearls are tatted in, the rest is sewed in. I could have added the small Toho 15 sead bead while tatting. Next time.
I worked this one with poliester thread (size 40) from Brildor, strand of 3.
2 shuttles, white 3 mm pearls, paper clip.
You will have to be accustomed to work with pearls/beads secured with paper clip, so make sure you have what you need at hand. One element of the pattern, with my thread measures 3,5 cm. You will have to count 2 pearls for each element. You will work the desired lenght, so you will have to prepare the necessary pearls.
In the pattern I marked with green the bigger ring to make it easier for the count of the doubles stiches. It has no relevance for the motiv.
