"Duchess" variation of Marilee's design

I have Marilee's book "Boutique Tatting" and it's one of my favorite. I wanted to make the necklace that is on the cover but I didn't have to many beads in the color scheme I selected, so I made a variation of it; doing only one repetition. I love it!!! I had to make a few minor variations so I was able to make it in one pass.

Here is a closeup of the main part of the necklace. This is definitively one of my favorites now. I need to buy more beads in amber tones so I can make another. I'm thinking also in earrings to complete the set.
I used Aunt Lydia's #10 in ecru. The beads are from Walmart, size E and the deep amber seed beads were a gift from Aileen Chia.

That is a lovely version of Marilee's lovely necklace! Nice work. Marilee's "boutique tatting" is one of my faves, too!

I like this variation. "less" is sometimes better, IMO, than more and I think you've still shown the design nicely.
