Picture of Tatted Chain Necklace

This is my very first original tatting design that I did last year when I learned how to tat.  I never thought it was very interesting, but I like it because it is my own design and finally decided to share it.

I have now made this necklace a total of 3 times.  Once when I made it up, once for my friend for her college graduation gift, and once for this Instructable.  I hope you enjoy!

You can see from the first version that my new one is much tighter and finished looking.  I also used beads the first time, which looks nice, but you need beads that can fit over the eye of the needle with it threaded.  I did R 4 bead 4/4 bead 4 cl. for the bead chain since the beads are about the size of a double knot or two.

Awesome! It's one of the loveliest tatted jewelry pieces I have seen. Will be featuring it on my blog in the future! I prefer tatting needles to shuttles!
