Tatted Turtle Eye Candy

The necklace is a bit stiff... Probably the only black turtle I have ever tatted, because the cord is so hard to see.
I love that bail design. This necklace makes me want to say wowza!
That necklace was so much work. Not really liking the Sassy Turtle beading. I think the coin was too big.
 Almost looks like a rosette but it is a turtle.
This is another "Lover's Knot" blog turtle. Materials: Delicas 11/0 DB983 Lined Shimmering Amber/Peridot Mix, 3mm CZ FP RD Dark Green (#1480871), 3mm CZ FP RD 2 Tone Topaz/ Green (3FC5258), DDP #220 Green Linen (Substitute C-Lon Tex70 Nylon Cord), and a 13mm Jade Disk.

Laissez Les Bons Temps Roule Turtle Necklace
Garnet colored beads and Grey C-Lon in Tex 70. Another Sassy Turtle.
This is one of my earlier turtles with 4mm Pink Quartz Rounds.
 This is also a Lover's Knot blog turtle. The scanned colors took on a life of their own. I thought the delicas 11/0 were gold lined but I can NOW see in the scan that they are champagne. The matte Delicas scanned very dark but they are a bit lighter and do match the hearts. The hearts look better in person as they are the neat hurricane style with the faint stripes through the glass. When natural light hits the cat's eye cabochon there is a flash of blue through the golden beading. I like navy and gold!
   Materials: Delicas 11/0 DB907 Inside Champagne, Delicas 11/0 DB748 Transparent Matte Blue, 6mm CZ Hurricane Hearts in Danube, 12mm Fiber Optic (Cat's Eye) Cabochon in Dark Blue, Miyuki 8/0 B0234 Sparkle Metallic Gold Lined Seeds Crystal, C-Lon Micro (Tex70)Nylon Cord in Gold.
I can not even afford to make this necklace today. The 6mm Hearts are real Azurite-Malachite. Vintage 3-cut beads (that I spent gobs of money on eBay for) are the blue necklace bead.The center of the turtle is a jade flat disk. I used DDP but would substitute C-Lon Micro (Tex70) Nylon Cord if duplicating this necklace today.
 Big FAN of Druks!
 A very large double-sided MOP coin bead.

Center of turtle is a Fossil Coin Bead that I purchased from Bead's and Pieces. That center is a real eye-catcher. I would use C-Lon Micro Tex70 Nylon Thread in Flax or Sable. Those 6mm Heart Beads are Silver Leaf Jasper.
