Another Occhi Bead Technique Invention For Rings

I was so excited and wanted to add beads to this bird, I think I invented a new technique. 
Wanting to tat Jane's Peacock found  here click on  Jane Eborall's Tatted Animals Page  it was so small and cute, and really wanted to add a bead to center, for the eye in the feather!
 Instructions as follows, find your center picot  (I added extra picot to pattern for center one) or double stitch, and with bead on crochet hook add a bead to the chain shuttle thread that you normally leave,
 while making the ring, and pull out enough thread to make loop large enough to pass shuttle through
Wa-La
continue on with ring and close and tighten up the chain thread :) 
By the way this is Marilee's thread color parakeet size 40 click here to go to her blog and then her Etsy shop.

 I rushed making the pattern and changing it messed it up a bit.  But I love it and sewed it down to felt added a little bit of embroidery.

                                      "Nessesity is the mother of invention" they say.

  4. Good idea to add beads,makes a lovely peacock. I'm surprised how well your technique works because I would've thought it would distort the chain. Shows it's a good idea to try things! Hats off to you.

    1. Thanks I will use this again, and it is good for the chain cause it kind of centers instead of leaving a space or a whole, it's great.
