My green Autumn Earrings: step by step tutorial

For my English speaking friends:

Let's tat together my green Autumn pattern

Here are the step by step instructions to make my new Autumn pattern you can see in the picture: I made it using a Polyester thread Penny 20 bottle green, Miyuki beads 11/0 Matte Metallic Patina, Swarovskji pearls 4mm. olive green.

First part: the Ankars flower

I normally tat Ankars flower using two shuttle. The second one I only use at the end of each couple of petals making a half knot just to pull the whole work tighter.
First of all I charge my shuttle 1 (the one I work with) with 54 seed beads.

Large Petal:                                                                                                                                         Leave 3 beads inside the ring before you start the knots: those beads will go on the top of the petal. 
5 knots.- 1 picot.- 2 knots.- 1 picot.- 3 knots.- take one bead from those you have on your thread and slide it towards the petal, so that it will be settled 'in work'.- 2 knots.- take the three beads you had left inside the ring and pull them up to the knots, those will be at the top of the petal.- 2 k.- 1 bead (as previously from the shuttle thread).- 3 k.- 1 picot.- 2 k.- 1 pic.- 5 k.- Close the ring
Small petal:                                                                                                                                          3 k.- 1 bead from the shuttle thread (all 4 beads you have on the shuttle thread).- 1 k.- 1 bead.- 1 k.- join to the big petal through its first picot.- 1 k.- 1 bead.- 1 k.- 1 bead.- 3 k. Close the ring.
Repeat  other 5  times

Second Part: Large arcs

Use two shuttles: charge shuttle two with 18 beads, those beads will go on the top of each arc.

Swarovskji beads rings:        

 5 knots.- join to the picot of the large petal underneath, on our left hand side.- 1 k.- insert the Swarovskji pearl (please refer to my previous tutorial if you need).- 1 knot.- join to the picot of the large petal underneath, on our right hand side.- 5 knots. Close ring


Big Arc:

3 k.- 1 pic.- 3 k.- 1 pic.- 3 k.- now we have to insert the beads which we'll find inside the arc: we'll take 3 loose beads and put them on the thread of shuttle one using a loop (you can refer to my previous tutorial) and we'll just leave them unfinished using a security pin, we'll pick them up later.- 1 knot.- 1 pic.- 2 knots.- now take 3 beads from shuttle 2 and pull them to the work.- 2 k.- 1 pic.- 1 k.- and now we have to pick the 3 beads we had left unfinished by removing the pin, pull the shuttle 1 thread through the picot using the hook, be careful you pull the thread accurately before you start with the knots again.- 3 k.- 1 pic.- 3 k.- 1 pic.- 3 k. 
Start again with the Swarovskji bead ring and repeat other 5 times.

Third part: finitions

This third part is a finition part, tatted without beads. 
We don't need to cut the thread at the of the second part: make 5 knots .- join to the first picot.- 6 k.- join.- 6 k.- jin to the picot.- now we have to make an arc over the three beads underneath: 2 k.- 7 picots of which the fourth will be a little bigger.- 2 k.- join.- 6 k.- join.- 6 k.- join.- 5k. -join to the Swarovskji peral ring and start again.
Repeat other 5 times
