I've gotten requests for the pattern, so here goes.
I've made this pattern a number of times. Here's a necklace I made for my mother a while back - she loves it and wears it all the time, as the whole thing is very light. I'm not going to claim ownership, just give directions, as the pattern is so very, very basic.
This pattern can be used as a necklace or a bracelet. It lays flat very nicely. If made in Lizbeth size 20 thread, 9 rings should be about 2 inches.
Shuttle and ball with size 20 thread, or 2 shuttles wound CTM
Lots of seed beads (10/0), an equal amount loaded on the shuttles or the shuttle and ball, depending on the length you desire. A 20 inch necklace will take 90 seed beads on each shuttle.
Pendant (if you're making a necklace)
Jump ring and lobster claw closure, or other closing as you chose.
Place 1b on back of hand.
R1 (Shuttle 1) 8 b 4 - 4. RW
Ch1 4 b 4. RW
R2 4 +(picot of prior ring) 4 b 4 - 4. RW.
*Repeat between * for 1/2 of length desired.
To attach pendant, make a chain.
Ch2 4 b 4 b 4.
At this point, it may be necessary to unload your thread and slide the pendant onto the chain you just made. RW, rewind shuttle(s).
R3 4 +(picot of prior ring) 4 b 4 - 4. RW.
Ch3 4 b 4. RW
R4 4 +(picot of prior ring) 4 b 4 - 4. RW.
**Repeat between ** for rest of length desired.
R5 4 +(picot of prior ring) 4 b 8. Cut, tie off, and hide ends.
Attach jump rings and closing hardware to first and last rings.
Here's a funny for you - I laughed and laughed
The man had just finished reading a new book entitled, 'YOU CAN BE THE MAN OF YOUR HOUSE'.
He stormed to his woman in the kitchen and announced, 'From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is Law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and we will have the kind of sex that I want.
'Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe...Then, you will massage my feet and hands. Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and do my hair?'
Without even looking up from her morning paper the woman replied, 'The funeral director would be my first guess.'
Over the weekend, I made a little crocheted cat toy, a ball with some catnip stuffed in the fiberfill. Vader liked it for a minute, but he's not so wild about catnip.
Sophie on the other had, is simply crazy for it.
