Christmas tree In Schiffchenarbeit

All beads except top one were strung on the chain shuttle, the top one was done with mock ring from Marilee's directions.

There are mistakes don't look too closely, Size 80 Lizbeth #676 fishing line to hang on hook is tied at top. Directions for tree at end of post

This is a small portion of a big box of mixed up beads.  Reminds me of old times, glue on pine cones and rolling them in beads and sparkles for ornaments,  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas time :) 

I pulled beads down from chain slightly(while making knots) so they have wiggle room on the tree and separated the beads with picots. 3 to 4 beads per chain. 

After searching for Christmas trees I found this tree with improved directions, from one of our dear departed tatter and thought I could share this sight with any one who missed it, she explains more

  2. I wished I had done my first one in larger thread it can get confusing if you don't follow the numbers and split rings.her smaller rings on inside like number 6 and 5 split rings I did 10 ds on each side and #'s 17 and 18 I did 8 ds. at the very top I made a clover with the top one being the mock ring. I strung on same number of beads but every picot was not a bead only 3 on all outer chains and did some enter chains with 4. if you notice most chains are 6 or seven picots, and son't ever forget to place 4 ds before and after picots on every chain and sung them down.

    1. Oh I know, it is odd viewing on phone, I just showed the beads are on loosely with a close up at starting stages.
