I have been busy tatting away for the upcoming Romance of the Piney Woods debut. Between tatting the pieces and making count annotations for the pattern collection inspired by said pieces, my fingers have been most productive. I did make a point this past weekend to take a break & spend some quality time with my daughter. As many of you know, dear readers, Jocelin and I adore antiquing/junquing. We found the lovely cameo bracelet featured in yesterday's post and I thought I'd share the other goody we discovered:
It is a rare Hamilton & Hamilton sterling silver faux pearl brooch. Of course, tatting accents will be added along with a healthy helping of Swarovskis! I may even have to add a few genuine pearls. This is a piece I would typically pass by as the pearls are faux, but the sterling silver mounting is exceptionally fine and is perfect for my kind of additions.
Keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow's blog post! Something pretty is going to be previewed!
Well, this isn't getting those Eternity pendants finished or the bracelet more along in its progress, either. I did receive some wonderful inspiration from our chick-flicks yesterday afternoon! Guess I'd better hop to it. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
