Tatted necklaces, upcoming shows

Two art/craft shows are coming up for me, so I'm trying to finish more things to display. "Celeste" is a new necklace design I came up with last week. It occurred to me that tatted connectors would be a fun thing to try. I joined the necklace parts with jump rings, short pieces of chain, and ribbon for an eclectic arrangement. The connector design seemed suitable for matching earrings.
The first show is Loominosity in New Berlin, Wisconsin. I'll be participating as a member of the Loose Bead Society, and I plan to be demonstrating tatting with beads on Saturday, October 30.

The other show is the Holiday Artisan Market at Discovery World, Milwaukee, Wisconsin on December 4 and 5. I'll have my own booth at that show, so I am working hard to complete enough unique tatted jewelry for a well stocked display.

Celeste is beautiful. Your work constantly serves as an inspiration for us to venture out of our comfort zone and try something like designing some piece of tatting to share with other tatters and we thank you for that.
