Frivolite, Holly Berry Brooch, Two Different Size Beads


Yesterday I made up another one with smaller beads so you can compare
Pattern on Previous post.
Compare Rocaille or Seed bead size one of 6 (larger) and other 12 (smaller) 

I even made a mistake in tatting and instead of a clover at one end I just did a double ring.  I figure in nature not everything is perfect.

I guess the big tip to remember is ... Don't make any ring with out sliding beads down :)
Also can attach holly to safety pin for faster results.
Or use matching color sewing thread, will sew through work quicker too! 


Makes a great tatting gift for the Holidays :)

  1. Really interesting what a difference the bead size makes. The big beads make for a more sumptuous look.

  4. I was going to ask what you did with them and then scrolled down and saw the brooches, brilliant idea, what do you stiffen them with?
    Have a lovely christmas.

    1. I didn't use anything. As long as you sew the pin sideways and that lower leaf hangs low, you are good to go. I did wear the bigger one out last night and it held up okay.

  5. Such a little bit of beads and thread makes such an impact. I think both bead sizes look great.
