Number 2 in progress!

For my next item of my 25 motif challenge, I going to make a bracelet.  These leaves are Frivole's Leaf design 

However, I added a series of split rings to the back which attach to the very top ring.  

Once I get more leaves tatted, I plan to attach them together, and I may even start tatting them together, but so that they can withstand being a bracelet without a horrible amount of stretching and distorting of the actual tatting, I want to thread stretchy cord in and out of these split rings on the back.  I have high hopes for this bracelet.  I'm planning to do different colors as well.
I also have some watch faces I could potentially put on it, but I think they might be too heavy for this piece.

Also, I have A LOT of thread in this color.  It was my first attempt at doing a teal colorway.  It's not that impressive looking here, but I will try to remember to take a picture of it tomorrow outside.  It really is gorgeous.  It's a very subtle teal, but very pretty!  Also, these beads are aquamarine color, but they too look a little green.  Color is so funny, and so hard to capture!

Alright, back to studying for me!


  1. Your leaves look really sharp!! :) And that color is perfect for leaves!! :)

  2. Beautiful in that thread with those beads...I like the idea you have with that, I think it will be really lovely!

  3. I look forward to seeing the finished article.

  4. I think your bracelet will look gorgeous, I am looking forward to seeing when you have finished it.
