My Lanyards continued...............2

Hello all,
I am using different combinations of beads and threads to continue tatting lanyards. These patterns can be used for necklaces, chokers, bracelets, anklets etc. I have made some patterns without using beads for decorating envelopes too. You will see them in my blogs later.
Happy to announce that I have joined 25 Motif Challenge by Sharon. 
This is the link to see my posts at My Challenges
Currently I have tatted all lanyards for eyeglasses. As some patterns of lanyard are same, I have mentioned appropriate links to patterns for your convenience.
Here are my new lanyards .........
 Lanyard 7  
All are simple split rings made with sky blue Anchor thread tkt 20. I have used tiny shiny white beads n big blue bead in between them giving sparkling look to the lanyard.
Tiny white beads are strung in each of Shuttle 1 and Shuttle 2. This close up will show you SR 8/8, SLT. Push one white bead from each shuttle n again make SLT.  Add bigger blue bead as shown in this link by Jane Eborall - Add bead lazy way , again one SLT, one white bead from each shuttle and continue next split ring.
                     Lanyard 8
 A Very decent combination of Grey Achor 20 number thread with golden bugle beads and black seed beads. The golden bugle beads are to be strung in both the Shuttles. Method of adding beads can be found here:Lanyard 4
                  Lanyard 9
This lanyard too same as Lanyard 6  in my earlier post but the placement, shape n color of beads vary. The white shiny beads are strung in both shuttles before working.

I hope you all will enjoy working on these patterns. 
Will be posting my other work soon.....
Any querries or suggestions about any of my posts are always welcome.
I value your comments too.
Happy Tatting to you all.


  1. The close-up pictures bring out all the beautiful variety of your lanyards ! Very difficult to choose a favorite :-)

  2. Interesting how you can achieve different effect by varying the beads.

    1. Thanks Jane!!!!! We can do many combos like this.

  3. Your lanyards are very pretty! I have to wear my glasses all the time, so a lanyard for glasses wouldn't be very useful to me. However, I do think your lanyards would make beautiful necklaces!

    1. Diane, thank you so much. You can keep them attached to your Eyeglasses. It looks like an ornament because of sparkling beads and bright thread colors.

  4. All of your lanyards are very beautiful!!! :) I love your color choices!! :)
