Got the step by step instructions up for anyone who wants to see how it is done!

This necklace was needle tatted using red crochet thread and regular iridescent beads, and a lobster claw closure.
I learned needle tatting from TotusMel and this is only my second original piece.  I used the beads so that the bows would look more separate from each other.  I thought about really making the bows separate and might try that sometime.  It will just take more time to do.

I made it up as I went along, but it ended up turning out quite nice.
Penolopy - I am so impressed with how quickly you are able to start designing beautiful tatted jewelry!!! I tried shuttle tatting over the years a few times and just can't get the hang of it. I saw needle tatting on this site done by TotusMel and fell in love with it!!! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your wonderful creations!
would you sell your pattern?<br>

I guess I never thought about selling the pattern. I wss hoping I could come up with a bunch of original designs and actually selling the product on etsy. I haven't actually written the pattern out so other people can understand, I made it up as I went along and have only made the one. I will have to see if I can get the pattern written out properly.
This is really beautiful...are you going to sell the pattern? Please...pretty please, pretty pretty please?
Looks good. It really sets off that white shirt nicely.
Thank you. I had a bit of trouble taking a picture of myself but thought it would help to show people how it looks on someone.
