This is the second snood I made to go with my wedding dress. This first one was also beautiful but I wasn't satisfied with it, so two years later I made this second one. Both snoods were experiments in tatting. This particular one I was working out the idea of tatting with ribbon. The idea started because I knew there would be a lot of open space and the ribbon would be more elegant than simple tatting thread, which can look rustic sometimes. Because I created the pattern as I went it was simpler to add the bead after it was finished. It is made from silver rayon ribbon, pearl cotton, pearls, and sequins. I am thinking about adding rhinestones for an upcoming event to make it a little more glitzy.
