Long time not here

I have been absent for too long. I miss my tatting, since I cannot do it like I am used to do it. Lack of time. My tatting is reduced now to 2 to 3 hours. Much to little for all I have in mind to do. A lot of projects wait in the line. A final touch here, a "check this idea" there, At least 3 patterns are on the way. Still.
I finished some of the pieces I started. I will post some of the patterns here, as promissed.
I finished today a bracelet. I will offer the pattern, more the way to do it, it is not difficult.

Central part: separate elements. 1 shuttle only. 
r: 10 - 10, close, do not turn.
R:  10 +  8 - 8 - 10, close, do not turn.
r: 10 + 10, close, do not turn.
Rr: 10 + 10 - 10.
Repeat until you have a square element done.

Work so many of those elements until you get the desired length. 6 of them in my case.

Outer round. 1 shuttle and 1 ball. 
Prepare the shuttle with the necessary seed beads for the rings. As you can see, 8 seed beads between 2 of the squared motifs. All those get on the shuttle. I placed also 16 seed beads on the ball (in this case add 8 extra beads on the shuttle). I wanted to have a double chain o the ends, better finish for adding the clasps.
Start from the point indicated in the image.
R( with 4 seed beads in the loop): 15 + 10 bp 5, close, do not turn work.
R: 5 + (separating the beads1 down, 3 up) 10 + (to the next element) 15, close, turn work.
Chain: 20. lock join to the next element.
Chain: 20 snug, turn work.
Repeat until you reach the end of the elements.
Have a look of the finished bracelet:
We work now the ending. After you have worked the 20 ds, make lock join.
Work chain: 25, make lock join. Do not turn work.
Work chain (with 4 beads ready): 3 bp (1 from hand, 1 from shuttle) 3 bp 3 bp 3 bp 3 snug, lock join to the next joining point of the element.
Work chain: 25, lock join to the picot from the other side.
Continue working the other side of the outer round.

The rest is up to you.
Feel free to change the ds for the outer round. My bracelet gos a nice, concave (or convexe) shape. And because of the Penny 30, the lace is fine and very stiff.
Ennoying fact: so many ends to hide!!! You can, of course, use the magic trick, but since you will want maybe to place a bead in the middle of the elements, better not. Personal choice, in fact.
Have fun tatting.

    1. Have fun with it, Jenn. I hope too that with the work will be fine. I like what I do and I am lucky to have really nice people around. As for the tatting, I am slower now because of this reduced time, but I am still tatting. With the same pleasure.

  2. Hi Corina .... I kept wondering about your absence each time a pin of your exquisite tatting came up on pinterest ( and which is very often :-) ). Glad to have you back, with another lovely piece of tatting and sharing the pattern as well :-) Hope you get to squeeze in more tatting time in future .

    1. Gracias, concha. La mayoria de las frivoliteras que he encontrado hablan inglés. El paso era normal. Pero siempre respondo y ayudo en español, si puedo. Besitos a ti.

  10. Precioso, maravillosa. Muchas gracias por compartir el patrón con todas. Tengo una pregunta para ti. Que tipo de hilo y marca recomiendas, y donde se puede conseguir en España. Gracias.

    1. Gracias, Rocio. Io vivo en Tenerife... El único hilo que compré en España fue el Brildor, un hilo para bordar industrial, muy fino (100) y laboro con 3 o 4 hilos a la vez.
      De hace un año, descrubri un hilo de poliester para cuero, fabricado en Italia (lo compro aqui: http://www.guastallascarpe.com/bs/categoria-prodotto/filati/). Il no 20 es como un Lizbeth 20, il 30 es como un Lizbeth 40. Un encanto trabajar con este hilo. Se llama Penny. Hay un otro: el Tenax. Me gusta también. Contacta a Edda Guastala en Facebook. Una excelente frivolitera italiana. Ella lo descubrio para nosotras.

  23. I love your Bracelet. I only needle tatting but I think I can follow your instructions for needle. some of your symbols are confusing however. I know that 10 - 10 means 10ds pico 10 ds but what does 10 + 10 mean.the plus sign I am confused about. I am very new to tatting. I am really enjoying learning different things. so far I have made earrings, necklace and bracelets. Rings, chains and split rings and mock rings.

  24. Hola, muy bonitos sus diseños y su manera tan fácil de explicar, gracias por compartir su talento. Una pregunta, ¿funcionará igual si lo hago con aguja? Es que por mas que intento aprender con lanzadera no puedo por mi artritis en las manos:(

    1. Hola, claro que se puede laborar con la aguja. Para la vuelta exterior tienes que usar las perlitas puestas en el hilo de la pelota. Asi de sencillo.

    2. Muchas gracias por responder.Que Dios bendiga su talento.
