As I was digging through boxes in the Atelier, hunting for the package of E6000 adhesive I've somehow hidden from myself, I came across some items I'd put in a box and forgotten about. As you know, I enjoy adding tatting to various items- especially vintage ones.
This little beauty was once a clip-on earring. It's finding had come off the back & it was in a plastic bag of miscellaneous vintage jewelry items at a local antique store. Won't it be just gorgeous with a tatted edging around it???
And I found my vintage Coro pine cone brooch!!! I really need to tat an accent for this one. Should I put it on a purse or one of my cloches?
Then there was this vintage blue brooch. I think it needs a super-frilly edging. Perfect for wearing on jackets and sweaters!
And the last thing in the box was this pair of earrings. Jocelin found these at a local boutique. I think she did great as they will be easy to enhance with tatting.
What do you like to add tatting to? And where do you find it?
I adore "junquing/antiquing" and hunting for goodies at boutiques and basically stores everywhere. You never know when or where you may find a potential treasure.
Guess I'll head back into the Atelier and see if I can't find some thread to use with these and put them in the project box by my chair. Have a wonderful day & feel free to comment and let me know what you like to add tatting to.
