"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Mom's Birthday Present

I actually made this about a month ago, but couldn't post it because it was for my mom's birthday. Well, she's opened it now, so here it is.


This is Marilee's Rotation Pendant again, this time in Lizbeth 703 Sky Blue Light and 704 Sky Blue Medium. I really like these beautiful clear blues, especially the medium one. So does my mom, so that works out well!

  1. Beautiful! Your tatting always makes me wonder if I should attempt the smaller, intricate, beaded beauties. : )

    1. Well, of course you should! Even if you don't wear much jewelry yourself, there are always people who like to receive a unique necklace or pair of earrings. Besides, it's nice to have smaller projects that can give you instant gratification instead of always working on monstrous doilies!
