This the Ripple Necklace by Yarnplayer, with beads added. I experimented with different ways of adding beads to the pattern, as you can see from the mucky bits at the top of the picture, but in the end stuck to Marilee's pattern, just adding beads to the centre of the rings. How did I add the beads? I made an downward facing picot at the top of each ring, by tatting the first half of the ds twice, space and then second half twice, adding the bead to the picot and joining to the ring just before closing. I think I'm going to do split ring braids instead of Marilee's chains.
