Bracelet

The first picture is the practice run for a bracelet with the shell beads. 

Can you see the wee heart shaped beads in between?  They were in the packet that Kelly sent me and I DID say here that she would lead me off the straight and narrow - well, she did!!!  Now I've allowed myself to be led astray I'm really enjoying it!!!!

They have a hole in the middle and you can put a tiny bead in that if you want to.
Well, after the practice piece came the 'real deal'.  Sadly the colours don't show up as well as the 'real thing'.  Perhaps I ought to have taken a photo instead of being really lazy and using the scanner!!!

That's so cute! I've seen little things like that where there is tatting around beads and charms and such, but I can't fathom how it is done...Hmm..

I love this bracelet! I am not sure how you tat around the beads either - what a great way to add lots of color.

I always find your tatting inspiring. Once again you have come up with a beautiful creation.

I like that Jane, it's very pretty! I'm partial to the blue-grey-green you used in your sample bit though... will you be making more than one?
