Modernizing an old pattern
On Frivolite en Espanol at Ning we're making a huge Group Work. We are translating to Spanish and modernizing the Priscilla Tatting Book No. 3 It will take up to December 13 to work all the patterns in the book. The members are all excited and they are working diligently on their assignments. One of the students worked Fig. 15 on the book and then made an example of how it will look with beads. The result is a gorgeous collar.
I couldn't find my gold colored beads at the moment but remembered the twisted bugles. I used white #10. Also with a repetition of the pattern I made a pair of earrings to complement. It's a really good way to modernize an old pattern.
