A pattern by Victoria Clarke from her book 'Tatting the Stone'. If you have this pattern book and have hesitated because you did not have the right size bead for it, don't.
This pattern called for a 18 x 14mm puff oval bead. This blue lapis lazuli that I used is 15 x 10mm and it works just as well. The other alternative is of course, to adjust the number of stitches to fit your bead or stone. This was tatted using Lizbeth Size 40 thread in Honey Drizzle (#180) and Miyuki Delica beads (DB1210).
