Picture of Tatted Princess Necklace and Earring Set
I needed something to wear with the beautiful pink dress I wanted to wear for Marvalous Monday at work.  So I whipped together this earring and necklace set.  It only requires regular rings and chains and is pretty simple to put together.  And it is, of course, pink!

Time to get started tatting:
  1. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 cl. k. rw.  (2 ds, 7 picots sep. by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  2. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw.
  3. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2  cl. k. rw. (2 ds, 4 picots sep by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  4. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw. 
  5. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 connect to center (4th) picot of previous ring 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 cl. k. do not rw.
  6. Repeat 1 - 5 until the desired length.  You will end with #5. 

Your necklace is done.  It is going to be really wavy-like, so you are going to want to at least iron it if not iron it, starch it, and iron it again.

Thank you for the wonderful necklace pattern. I just finished making one for my wife. I plan on giving it to her for Valentines Day. I hope she likes it. I just started tatting a week ago.

So pretty. From the thumbnail I thought the ear rings were skulls. That would be cool. But this is really pretty.

Thanks!
Beautiful! Your tatting projects are inspiring.
Thank you! It's great to hear it!
When you say whipped up did it take hours and hours? This just looks too delicate and intricate to be a quick craft! I love the color!
I would say an hour or two maybe. It is always hard for me to tell because I get distracted and stop to take pictures as I go. It really doesn't take much time, especially when you have a repeating pattern like this because you are just doing the same thing over and over and over again :)

And I like the color too!
Wow this los like it takes days! I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head but you ate intriguing me!
I know! I always pick up new crafties and now I have too many thing I want to make all the time!

Oh, wow.
They are gorgeous, nice make! I'm sure this is far beyond the skills of my own hands, though I've forwarded it to relevant female family members :D
