Off the Shuttle: Tatted Beaded Necklace

Finally finished this necklace that I started last year. The patterns for the beaded motifs are from Tatting & Beads Graceful Jewelry by Takako Araki and Megumi Yamanaka (Ondori, 2009). The motifs are attached to "Handkerchief Edging No. 2" from Tatting Doilies & Edgings edited by Rita Weiss (Dover Publications, 1980, pg. 19) with beads substituting for the picots in the pattern. The variegated green and pink thread is Olympus size 40 thread. The beads are size 8/0 seed beads in colors Matte Ceylon Seafoam and Matte Ceylon Baby Pink.
