Usually, I am able to get a new design to come out the first time. Maybe, a little tweaking the second time. BUT 4 TIMES!!! I must be loosing it! I'm not able to cope with failure in the art department. I figured out the design wasn't coming out to my standards because I was using a tear drop bead instead of a bead with the hole through the center. Finally, four tries later, and I obtained the design I was looking for.
The pendent was tatted with two strands of gold, metallic sewing thread, aroung a focal bead and a flattened bead for the drop.
