Scissor fob

Here are 2 scissor fobs that I tatted for Mary M. The beaded one is made with size 12 thread and seed beads surrounding 9 x 6 mm beads. The small scissor fob has a button in the center. The little butterflies and the letter and butterfly charms are an extra little gift that I'm sending along.

I love the look of beads in tatting but tatting with beads is a bit challenging for me as it feels much slower than tatting without them.

Dear Joice,
yes, tatting with beads is slower, but it gives me much more satisfaction. Like all hobbies it is a play of patience.
I would like to know the technique you used to insert the beads in the middle of the ring.
