Grand Aura Necklace


I started this necklace by tatting the edging. A pattern from Anne Orr's Tatting Book #13 on page 6 Plate 14. Tatted in Lizbeth 20 in Vineyard Harvest (#131) with Miyuki Delica beads in pearl pink (DB210). It measures about 24 inches.
I added this antique silver-tone flower clasp in the front and then looked for a pendant to accompany this. I was browsing through Yarnplayer's 'Up and Tat 'Em' book and thought that the Grand Aura pattern (pg 7) would make a nice pendant to match. I looked for my focal beads and found a pink amethyst briolette and a Swarovski pearl.


This necklace is a belated birthday present for a dear friend. Did she like it? I hope so.
