Vintage Pins

Estate sales are always interesting.  You never know what you may find.  As it happens, at the last local sale, I found a couple of treasures.

This is a lovely cultured pearl bar pin that is just begging for tatted accents!  It is very small and will be an elegant touch to a lapel or blouse.

What shall I enhance this gold filled pin with???  Pearls, Swarovskis, silk tatting?  How about all three!  These old pins make the best foundations for anchoring tatting and other accents.

Guess I had better get back to work in the Atelier.  I am still working on several Eternity pendants, and have more cameos and vintage pins waiting to be enhanced.  May you have a wonderfully creative day!  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
