Moonlight & Magnolias

Here is another preview of a special couture tatting piece from my upcoming Romance of the Piney Woods collection:

WARNING-This is an original copyrighted design!

"Moonlight & Magnolias" began life as a plain 12K gold filled vintage Van Dell filigree pin.  I added 2 rows of champagne pearls, beige antique Czech seed beads, and a few freshwater rice pearls along with copious tatting.  The tatting is done with Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S49 (Subtle Elegance).  I used 2 1/2 spools of the silk! 

This piece will be available for purchase on my website Piney Woods Atelier once the collection debuts.  The scheduled premier date is July 13th, so it won't be long now!

The Atelier is full of pieces waiting for my attention, so I'm off to finish a few things.  May you have a marvelous day, and please let me know what you think of my latest couture tatting creation.  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
