Triangles and Lanyards


A few years ago I designed this triangle and I decided to revisit the design and tweak some things.  You'll be seeing more of this soon.
I took a break from the triangles to tat a beaded lanyard.  Thank you to Patti D for the pattern. I had to play around with stitch count since my beads are smaller than the pattern called for. This piece actually became a zipper pull.
Here it is in silver thread, it is so much prettier in person than the photo shows.  This pattern is great because it tats up so quickly.  I am hoping to have the lanyard finished this weekend.

I love the triangle, and the lanyard looks like something I should try. I do have lots of beads lying around!

I love this triangle, really pretty! The pearls are very elegant in the other designs for the lanyard, very pretty also.

I am leaning towards designs with minimal picots, just like what you have shown here. Lovely in silver.

the lanyard is very elegant, lovely
and simple! I love pearls with
silver! and the triangle is
eye-catching, it could be a module
or an earring, I like the way you
encourage creativity. May I use it
for a Christmas tree please? thanks!

I have not yet written up the triangle pattern and anyone who wants the lanyard pattern must email me.

Hi, this would make a beautiful bracelet. I would love to have the pattern or instructions, if you accept sharing it with me at pint@normandin.be. Regards.

I like the triangle but the lanyard especially took my eye. This would make such a beautiful bracelet. Could it be done with the needle instead of using the shuttle? I started to attempt it making up as I went along but was tricky to get the chain to scallop around the bead. Could you please send me your email so I could get the pattern, mine is carolynjarchibald@gmail.com.
