My Lanyards continued..........1

Hope you enjoyed my creations. 
There are endless possibilities with thread colour and beads of different varieties and their placement. Some more designs n combos are in my mind. 
Hope I can make them soon.

Now the remaining three i.e. Lanyard 4,5 and 6 of previous blog are here...
            Lanyard 4
 Simple split rings in light purple thread with brown bugle beads 
and pearls give a stunning combination.
                                    Lanyard 4 work in progress, a closer look
            Lanyard 5
This Lanyard also has split rings with bugle beads n crystal beads in 
between two rings. Dark blue and transparent white combination
               gives very attractive look. Sorry, no work in progress pic for this one. 

           Lanyard 6
                     Wonderful combo of pink n shiny white beads on both halves of 
                       split ring and little bigger crystal bead in between the rings.
  Above image is close of Lanyard 6 work in progress 

Some more lanyards in the making.
Looking forward to your comments n suggestions............
On request, I am adding a close-up of the 3rd lanyard in previous post.

My Lanyards

Hi !!! Back after long time. Been busy making lanyards with split rings for eyeglasses. Enjoyed using different kinds of beads and creating something new. You can see black or white findings attached at each the end of the lanyards.
                      Click on the image above and you can see all different varieties I made.
                                Showing below how I have used each lanyard for spectacles.
           Lanyard 1
Made with simple split rings and three SLTs (Shoe Lace Knots) in between two rings.
            Lanyard 2
 In this variation, the braid has 3 parts- the two end segments with bugle beads strung on both shuttles, and the central portion with large round beads.
Further, the end segments have one SR alternating with two adjacent half closed rings (HCR) , one each made with 2 shuttles. The bugle bead , placed on core thread, covers the bare thread space when the ring is closed, creating a lovely half moon shape. 
Middle part is made up of SRs only, using the technique of bead in center of SR by two smaller SRs.  
                                   The above image is taken while working on the pattern.
                                            Just to give close up of HCRs and beads
               Lanyard 3
Simple split rings with beads in between the two makes a great pattern.
I loved this Grey, black n shiney white combination.
This was my work in progress now inserted for close up.

 Will be posting other three lanyards in top pic tomorrow.                                              
Kindly mail me in case you need detailed working of any one of these.
Happy Tatting till then ...........

Dot Picot Square

Thank you all for great response to my dot picot idea.

Look at this motif. I made with shiney silky thread
mostly i use for making Rakhis
There are three rows and dot picot used in last i.e. third row
For Dot Picot pl refer to my earlier blog.
SLT (Shoe Lace Trick ) is used where there is change of color in a row.

You will surely enjoy working this!!!!!!!

Rosemary's Heart

I found there is great difference in overall beauty
of the motif by replacing picots by dot picots.
 Dot Picots give ornamental look to the motif or lace.

To experiment this I tried Heart motif by Rosemary Peel
I have kept bottom centre ring as in original pattern.

Many more patterns I am working on.........
Will be posting them soon
