Peacock Blues meet Starry Night? Hmm... (Motifs 21&22 /25)

As soon as I opened up the window to create a new post, my brain automatically started screaming that I have more to post than what I'm about to, but I can't think of what it is... Oh well.  I'm sure it'll come to me later... (Maybe. LOL). 

So, here's the long, boring story:  I wore the red and black bracelet that I made on Sunday (and it held up!!!).  My cousin saw it and asked me to make one for her.  I had some tatting stuff with me so, while I didn't plan to make a whole bracelet sitting in the middle of a park, I figured I'd just show her how it's done.  Of course, I go to show her off the ball and the thread knots.  So, I cut it and decided I'd just make up a quick ring to show off, LOL. Well, we left before I finished, but I came home, finished half of that ring and decided I wanted to make another one.  (Oh!  It's the Remembrance Ring from... Yarnplayer?  I'll check in a bit).  

So, I did...  It's done in Lizbeth Size 20, Color 149, Peacock Blues with two colors of size 11 Czech glass seed beads and one li'l Hematite star (I love hematite!).  I went with the nine ring that the pattern suggestions ...definitely much too big for my hands...  :-/

Yesterday, I sat down and started tatting with the same thread, the same beads (plus one somewhat larger hematite star) and went with the same stitch count... This is what happened:

A bracelet for Kathy!  :-)  It measures 7 1/2" with Lobster claw clasp included in that.  Scans don't show the beauty of hematite, so I had to whip out my phone and take more pictures...  I still need to hide the ends, but it's done! :-D  

Well, hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

Nice! I have some hematite, too ( it's a favorite) but it's quite heavy. Your stars look dainty in comparison and fit well with the tatting. Lovely gift!
