AOSJ for adding beads in split ring

Vintage patterns have always something to teach. I learned this join when tatting a pattern from 1923!

I love playing with techniques, just like in a jigsaw puzzle where pieces are all mixed up till someone puts one next to another and they perfectly match. Plus, there are many ways to do the same thing, we are spoiled for choice! 

This time I'd like sharing one more way to put a bead in a split ring, I adjusted the method that I explained here: Anne Orr's Slip Join (AOSJ) – pics 43 & 44

bracelets with beads put inside split rings with the AOSJ

Look at next pictures, follow the sequence of steps from left to right and up to down. Split rings are 10ds on both sides (red and yellow thread), that is: 10ds on the normal stitch side, then 10ds on the reversed stitch side.

I started the split ring. Then the side with normal stitches temporarily stops at the middle point (I tatted 5ds) and I tatted half of the second side (5rs, reverse order). 

At this point I added the bead, in this way: on the second side of the split ring, make the second half stitch unflipped (first pic on the upper left), pick a bead and put it on the loop formed by the leg of that half stitch.

(That is very similar to what I shared for normal rings in one drawing here: https://flic.kr/p/mTMZeB , but in that case the loop is joined to the core thread in a different way)

Then, I passed the core shuttle thread through the loop pulled from the bead, then I continued with the rest of the first side of the split ring. In that way the shuttle’s thread is trapped into the loop coming from the bead, but it is still free to slide.

Then look at the upper right picture of previous collage: pulling (not too tight) the second shuttle thread (yellow), the loop inside the bead disappears and you see from the other 2 pictures that I resumed the second side of the split ring and tatted the remaining stitches. 

Close the split ring and that's all.

I added one bead, but with the same method you can add many beads as you like, for example in the next pic I added 3 little beads. Of course, the stitch count in the split ring should be right to fit the size of the bead or the number of little beads you choose.

There isn't any difference between front and back: 
I hope that you like the AOSJ and I think that it has a lot of potential, still to be discovered.

Ciao,

Ninetta
