Tatted Jewelry from Vintage Patterns


Tatted Jewelry from Vintage Patterns



Wrapping a bangle in shuttle tatting uses the method of wrapping or encapsulating as in making a split ring or split chain or covering a cabone ring.

Wrapped and tatted bangles by Erin Holloway



If you are a needle tatter, you need to improvise. You have two choices:

1. Simply using your fingers to wrap the thread around the bangle form. Please review this page: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art37565.asp Here the yellow thread on the left hand would be replaced with the metal bangle form. Remember the half stitches are wrapped not tatted so the transfer does not occur.



2. Or, you can use the needle as if it were a shuttle. The needle is attached to a long cut thread as normal, and then manipulated in the same manner as a shuttle. In the finger tatting photo, just imagine your fingers holding the needle and all the rest of the movements are the same. Remember in this case, the half stitches are wrapped not tatted so the transfer does not occur.



Here, Jennifer Williams has prepared diagrams showing the two movements of the needle used as a shuttle:









And look at this example of using a needle as if it were a shuttle:




In this photo, the thread bundle held being wrapped by the green thread from a needle used as if it were a shuttle would be replaced by the metal bangle form.






The next step would be to wrap two bangles and then choose a pattern that will combined the two pieces into one bracelet. You could select any vintage edging or insertion and use multiple colors as well as adding bling with beads, crystals and baubles.



Here are some suggestions for patterns, both easy and challenging.
