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. P1140308

    I love the pattern–very unique and contemporary! You shuttle tatters are an enigma to me–so far I’ve only begun to master needle tatting. Your work is very inspiring to me!

      Thank you so much! Chantilly actually evolved out of making a mistake with my Sweetheart pattern but I had worked so far I didn’t want to cut the thread!
      Thanks for the comment!

    Hi Jennifer,

    I can’t seem to find an email address for you (I’m hoping you have comment moderation turned on 😀 )… would you please drop me an email so I can get in touch with you (I’m interested in featuring your website).

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
