See if you can find the tatted dove in the top photo! The tatting pattern is by Jane Eborall.
The photo at left shows the whole tree. I'm impressed with how big it is and the number of dove ornaments that people donated for it.
|I tatted another dove for my own Christmas tree!|
The necklace that I had been designing in blue is now deep garnet red!
Well, I just had so many failures trying to get the math to balance out evenly while designing I was getting discouraged. I figured if I changed colors it would seem like a new project and I could start fresh. It worked! I like it, and I'm calling the design "Beatrice" which means "bringer of joy".
I'll be listing the finished necklace for sale in my Etsy shop, but the pattern so far is only scribbled notes for myself. The techniques I used include pearl tatting, rings thrown off each side of pearl tatting, bead picots, and Catherine Wheel Joins. I used Lizbeth #674 Garnet Dark in size 10, Toho large hole seed beads size 11/0, and Swarovski crystal bicones size 6mm in Fire Opal.
