Savor the lavish yet delicate beauty of an exquisite beaded tatting lace necklace. Popular in the European courts of the 18th century, tatting is an interlacing of rings and chains formed by knots, using fingers and a shuttle. This series of knots creates patterns which can be extremely intricate. The classic, somber elegance of the black beading is contrasted with lustrous metallic beads and hints of gold, creating a bold but refined effect that goes with anything but always stands out.

Necklace is made from metalized polyester and silk threads with glass beads. It measures 17 inches long and 1 ½ inches wide.

Lorina Balteanu innovated the technique of tatting, incorporating glass pearls and semi precious stones into her designs, giving the lace a new sense of luxury. Each piece is entirely hand-crafted by lacemakers in her workshop in France.
