Tatted Necklace

Marilee Rockley (http://yarnplayertats.blogspot.com) has a free  tatted necklace called "Ripple". Here is my necklace with beads attached at the time of tatting.  One of my prizes on winning first place on the Heavenly Orb wall hanging was a  Resin Fairy Charm and a package of  Flat Spirals from Jenny Friske-Baer from www.DivineSparkDesigns.com. When I added the Charm it was too heavy and sagged so I added Flat Spirals at the end of the tatting and it helped.  Was not sure how to attached them. I have seen many pictures and they have taken a piece of jewelery wire  to make a hanging out of it then attached it to a ring.  Perhaps it might hang better if I attached the chain around the center and back to the ring. The blue teardrop is a bead I had purchased a long time ago and has found a home!
Marilee, Thank you for this easy pattern. I encourage beginners to give this pattern a try.
