This is a public thank you to Jeff R. T. He does numbers like nobody's business. I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I work for an oil and gas law firm. We do mineral title opinions. I'm pretty good with tract numbers, but get really confused doing unit numbers (doesn't matter). I have a history degree for a reason! Jeff has twice in the last few months sat down with me to go through weighted royalty rates and other parts of the unit calculations. He is a genius. When we get through everything adds up to 1. One is a good number.
These two pendants are in the way of a more substantive thank you than the fervent one I blessed him with when we finished the last round of numbers. His lady friend likes blue. Isn't it nice of him to think of her? I didn't know which he would like so I made both with the same thread and beads. The thread is Oren Bayan variegated gold metallic and the beads are size 15 glass seed beads. My thanks don't go as far as chains.
The patterns are from Jon Yusoff's Tatting with Rings. The first is Kerosang, but I adapted the top to make a ring for the chain to go through. The second is Permata -- it still needs a jump ring for the chain.
If I had a brain - I'd be dangerous! Some weeks ago I made several bookmarks like this one. They're for the craft fair I'm going to do in October. It might seem a bit far...
