What was your inspiration?
Fooling around with a vintage tatting pattern.
What are you most proud of?
I like how the round bead nestles into the curve at the top of the tatting.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's a one shuttle project, using rings, chains, and joins. There's also a lock chain at the top, made by tatting one half of a double stitch unflipped, the next half flipped. Since it's a small project, it's good for practicing tatting skills with beads.
