Some Celtic necklaces and tatting plus wire earrings


Celtic Triangle necklace. I started with the Celtic Triangle Pendant taught in my "Next Steps In Shuttle Tatting" course on Craftsy, then added on to make the necklace. 

More about this shamrock pattern on this page.

I was talked into making these earrings! Making a pair of anything is twice the work of one item, plus they're expected to match or at least "go together". Also smaller so more difficult than a pendant. But pretty, aren't they?

Another person talked me into making these! But she bought me lunch and paid more than I asked, so that worked out better than expected! Wire in these is gold filled, which I hardly ever use, it's pricey!

Spring is "progressing" slowly with many steps back into winter. Just how it always is in my corner of Wisconsin.

But I have crocuses blooming!

Fabulous necklace and clover pendant, and gorgeous earrings!!!!! :)
Thanks for sharing the picture of the crocus!! I see more of the steps back into winter here, so I guess I will have to invest in some crocuses for the new yard. ;)

Everything is just beautiful. I especially like the wire wrapped earrings, not the gold ones as much, they are fabulous.
