One of the first bracelets I designed was Chantilly. Way before I started incorporating beads and crystals this bracelet still looks beautiful to me just plain. Like many of my patterns, it is actually the Sweetheart pattern minus a significant ring. I was trying to make a Sweetheart necklace and when I missed the ring…which is a time consuming pain to correct, I looked at this and decided to make Chantilly. It is actually two motifs tatted together mirroring each other. The bracelet is tiny rings criss-crossed to make a flexible corset type of chain. I thought of the name Chantilly because at the time the song “Chantilly Lace” was running through my head like a locomotive. But I think it is a strongly romantic name. I have now made and sold several Chantilly bracelets in various colors with beads, sterling silver rings and different styles of the bracelet that attaches to the center motif. I have sold these on Etsy and at the Blue Heron.
