Finished Yoyo Brooch

Well, I played with all of the different options for the yoyo brooch and was not exactly happy with any of them.  The Swarovskis I had planned to use on the picots were too orange- I needed something more peachy.  Then I tried both of the MOP buttons... didn't like either.  After rummaging through the button stashes I found this 18mm Czech art glass button.  It looked better.  I simply added 3 picot laden chains around the base of the button & voila...

I am still not exactly happy with the finished brooch, but will continue to play with the yoyos and experiment.  I may add this brooch to the straw hat Jocelin wears when we go fishing.  Or it may just be recycled.

Don't forget to comment on yesterday's Easter Event blog post for your chance to win the goodies!!!
The winner will be announced on Wednesday, March 28th.
Good luck!

I think I will dig through the fabric drawers in the Atelier and see what strikes my fancy for the next experiment.  I need to get a project ready to take with me tomorrow as Jocelin is participating in the literary rally held at Louisiana Tech University.  At least I can get in some tatting while I wait for her.  Jim is going to finish planting the garden (I hope) and mow the yard- it is absolutely out of control after the last rain. 
Have a fantastic weekend doing whatever makes your soul sing!
Until next week~
Happy Tatting!
