I needed a little break from the doily, so I made some more jewelry from Marilee Rockley's book Beaded Tatting Finery.
The earrings are called "Melange", and the pendant is "Cloudburst". The thread is Lizbeth color 607 Charcoal Medium. The round and pear-shaped beads are Swarovski pearls in colors Petrol, Blackberry, and Powder Rose; the seed beads are Miyukis in the Blue Iris color.
I've never tatted anything quite like these, and they were pretty fun. I think it would also be interesting to try them in a subtly shaded thread.
Now I'm ready to get back to the doily.
Beautiful tatting, Miranda! And I really like your new header... It is terrific.ReplyDelete
Lovely! Will you wear them yourself?ReplyDelete
Oh yes, these are mine. :) There's a bracelet pattern that goes with them too, but I never wear bracelets, so I didn't bother making that.Delete
What a glamorous set!!! :)ReplyDelete
