"R" we there yet?

Not quite, LOL.
This piece requires explaining, though I'm afraid an explanation won't really help much. It's a wedding necklace in progress that was supposed to incorporate some letter "R's" since both bride and groom have "R" in their initials. So I started with a fancy "R", then flipped it mirror image to have 2 "R's" facing, then - to my surprise, suddenly a cross appeared in the middle. Now, I actually think this design is turning out to be pretty fabulous (well, I would think that, LOL) but I'm not sure how the intended wearer will react to it. I've never even met the bride - she's the daughter of a friend of a friend who found out that I tatted and before I knew what was happening I got commissioned to tat a wedding necklace with letter "R's" in it. Sigh...live and learn...just say no!

What a fabulous idea! It took me awhile to see the "r" because you've tatted beyond it at this point, but they are there. Nice design even if you hadn't told us about the symbolism.

It's very pretty! The bride will be fortunate to have something so nice.

That is just gorgeous and I think the bride will love it. If she doesn't, then she's crazy!

Have I delurked before on your blog? I can't remember. But I do have to say that is a very pretty necklace and if the bride is someone who enjoys handmade thread jewelry, you have nothing to worry about. If she's not, then her relative shouldn't have commissioned you, but your work is still beautiful.
