7th Motif - Clover Pendant and Bookmarks

I started the 25 Motif Challenge to learn new techniques. While the clover isn't new to me anymore, turning it into a pendant is. This is the first piece of tatted jewelry I've made.

I made a simple clover/chain motif and added beads to the center rings of the clovers and a charm to the bottom of one of the clovers.

What I found while making the pendant was how versatile small motifs can be. I made a couple more motifs and added them to shepherd's hooks and really like the way they turned out. I've given one of the bookmarks to a friend as a thank you gift and she thought it was lovely.
