Tatted Birdwing Butterfly Necklace


Here is one of many tatted butterfly projects that I am currently working on.
I call this one "Gloria". She is tatted in a sturdy black upholstery thread. I am not sure what size but I am guessing size 30. Her antennae are beaded as well as the necklace portion which is nylon coated steel wire with silver plate findings.

I think I may try this again but this time encapsulating wire within the tatted wings.

Fit for a queen! Very pretty! Would you use colored beading wire in the wings?

Very pretty! I can picture this setting off a sweetheart neckline on a little black dress!

Beautiful! Even though I don't wear tatted necklaces, I do admire them. I'd be tempted to duplicate this in wire - if I had time. LOL!

Great lines and clean design. It looks like it was inked, not tatted.

Super-cool! Sort of "Art Nouveau" with its elegant curving lines.
