Good morning, dear readers!
I have hit a bit of a design snag with the AT brooch and am re-evaluating what I need to do to finish it off to my satisfaction. Stay tuned later in the week for the finished piece as I am determined to complete it.
After ripping out a couple hours worth of tatting on the AT brooch, I decided to dig into my box of vintage goodies. I had begun work on an intaglio brooch earlier and picked it back up. It is being enhanced by a layer of tatting with Swarovski bicones and will be further accented with more expanded tatting.
Anyone have a name suggestion for this one?
Another intaglio beauty I discovered in my stash is this pendant:
She has a bezel of light topaz rhinestones and a wonderful filigree frame that is begging for loads of tatting. Of course, I will have to add pearls to her. Maybe some Swarovskis, too. How about a name suggestion for her as well?
Hopefully, today will be a more productive, creative tatting day. I don't know where my head was yesterday, but my work was just off. Here's hoping today is better. Well, I'm headed to the Atelier with hot cocoa in hand and a sweet bulldog at my side. Have a great day & until Wednesday~
