Playing with Mary's Butterfly

Hi
Do you remember Mary's butterfly, pictured here in various colours well I have been playing with the pattern, I thought it would make a nice pendant.
So I stated to play yes I could tat a round without beads then I thought I would try some pearls, but the pearls proved to be very heavy, so I thought I would try a lighter bead..............


Close up with the pearls, I still think it looks lovely but its very heavy in weight.



This is the lighter bead, only its went a bit wobbly, I think I made a loop too big somewhere, the piece looks OK and worked out how I thought it would, yes OK a bit wobbly but I am still not happy with it, so I will be playing with it a bit more, I think the idea works just getting the right beads.

I still think the pearls make a better looking pendant perhaps every other ring with a pearl would take some of the weight off it. What do you think?

The thread I used for both was Lizbeth no 20 in white and Grape Pizzaz.

Any ideas will be gratefully received.
Just one last thing I found that Janette left a late comment with the guess on the TIAS so I will be making one for her, I have your address Janette but what colour would you like.
Until we meet again I hope you are keeping well, warm and staying safe in this cold weather.

Hugs

Margaret
