Bejewelled Ice Drop

I met with a tatting friend yesterday.  She is a member of the Ice Drop Addict group.  She had lots of pretty ice drops to show me.  I particularly liked this one with bugle beads and Swarovski crystals.  My friend was kind enough to give me all the bits to make one.  She is not very experienced with posting images on the internet so has not yet been able to share her creation on the Ice Drop Addict Facebook page (just in case Diane wonders why she's not seen it there yet!).

The pattern is a slight modification of Nicola Bowersox's Birthday Ice Drop (which was itself adapted from Wally Sosa's 2015 Birthday Motif pattern).  

Very pretty I think.
A nice use of bugle beads,
and I also like the addition of Swarovkis.

I might just have to make another as she also gave me some blue cabochons...
*** Thank you! ***

It was a nice break from the pattern from the previous post which, believe or not, I'm still working on!  I might get to the end eventually.

Best wishes,


  1. Pretty with the beads, and quite vintage looking. I'm getting a 1970s vibe from it. I'm surprised you are still working on the snowflake from your previous post. It looked perfect and ready to go!

    1. Thank you Robin! Yes I can see what you're saying about the 70s vibe. :-)
      And thank you for your comment about the snowflake too!

  2. Oh I do love the use of bugle beads, very nice.

  3. Wunderschöne Eischristalle. Ich habe noch keine Stiftperlen verwendet. Gefällt mir aber sehr gut.
    Werde später auch mal mit Stiftperlen probieren.

  4. That is a fabulous ice drop, Gorgeous colours and love the use of the bungle beads are you going to become an ice drop addict too.
    I will look out for your friend on the Facebook ice drop page,

  5. Love the bead it great💮😄💮

  6. Beautiful! Love the effect of the bugle beads.

  7. Beautifully done! I do like that pattern, but haven't tried it yet. I think I have way too many projects on my to-do list!

  8. This is such a lovely pattern and the colors go together quite nicely. I hope your friend manages to share the pictures of her work, the more tatters the merrier.

  9. Thank you very much for all your lovely comments!
