Pattern Description:

The curving, natural forms of the Art Nouveau style was my influence in designing this jewelry set of necklace with matching bracelet and earrings. To create these undulating curves in tatting, I used 2 shuttles and reversed direction of the chains frequently. The level of pattern difficulty has been set to "advanced" and although this is definitely not a beginner's pattern, it would be an enjoyable challenge for someone already comfortable with basic tatting skills and working with 2 shuttles. There are many in-progress photos to help with unusual techniques. The pattern includes written instruction in English and diagrams.
