#16 Double Celtic Ribbon Edging

This edging or choker necklace is similar to the previous motif, but tatted in two separate pieces that are woven together with the ribbon. I've added some beads at the bottom, but beads could be used on the top as well.

There are plenty of tatters who are better at beads than I am, but I wanted to try putting some beads on the chain thread. The dangle at the center is just a few different beads strung on the tatting thread before beginning the piece. That thread is then used as the ball thread to tat the chains.
