Bracelet in Brown by Anna Spina
Anna Spina, annaspina1969@yahoo.it







Anna Spina's bracelet pattern has only photos and the diagram. Here is a suggestion on how to tat it:
R = ring CH = chain, + = join, - = picot clr = close ring rw = reverse work
You need 4 diamonds, the center of the bracelet stacks up two of them. The diamond pattern is a classic cloverleaf separated by chains.
Here is the basic pattern. Using one shuttle and ball thead or two shuttles, begin with the cloverleaf.

R 5 - 5 - 5 - 5 clr do not rw, leave no bare thread.
*R 5 + (join to last picot of first ring) 5 - 2 - 2 - 5 - 5 clr do not rw, leave no bare thread.
R 5 + (join to last picot of second ring) 5 - 5 - 5 clr rw
CH 3 - 3 rw
(Second cloverleaf)
R 5 + (join to last picot of third ring) 5 - 5 - 5 clr br>Repeat from * for a total of 4 cloverleafs

Beaded version:
R 5 - 5 - 5 - 5 clr do not rw, leave no bare thread.
*R 5 + (join to last picot of first ring) 5 - 2 beaded picot 2 - 5 - 5 clr do not rw, leave no bare thread.
R 5 + (join to last picot of second ring) 5 - 5 - 5 clr rw
CH 3 - 3 rw (first chain should have picot large enough for a beaded join, the other two chains should have only small decorative picots.(Second cloverleaf)
R 5 + (join to last picot of third ring) 5 - 5 - 5 clr br>

Repeat from * for a total of 4 cloverleafs. However, place no bead on the last cloverleaf and when tatting the last chain, place bead on the picot of the first chain and join to the last chain. Complete chain and finish off ends.

Create two beaded versions. The unbeaded large ring of the set of diamonds will be used for the clasp mechanism at both ends of the bracelet.

Create two more beaded versions. The first is like the above but add a large bead into the center of the large ring of each cloverleaf. Join this motif to one of the side pieces in the beaded picot of the large ring.

The second is like the above also but place a large focal point bead in the center where the chains join across. Join this motif to one to the center of the diamond placed beneath it.There are four chains on either side of the center piece which join to the side diamonds. Each of these chains could be attached, tatted and secured independently. They join into the side joins of the cloverleafs. However, these chains could be tatted as the underlaying center diamond is tatted. Try making a single shuttle chain (http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2003/ssch/ssch.html.) The shuttle is stretched out and joined to the other piece and then the ds are wrapped on to it back to the center diamond. Inner chains are 20 ds and the outer chains are 30 ds.

Many thanks to Anna Spina for sharing her work with us.
