Good morning, dear readers! I hope you had an enjoyable International Tatting Day yesterday. I worked on a special tatting project for my Mom at a local park whilst enjoying the Godiva chocolates Jim gave me. Jocelin and I also took the top off the Jeep and went for a leisurely drive. All in all, it was a marvelous day!
The evening was spent watching The Hobbit on demand and making these pearl & bead foundations:
Pearls are my favorite precious gem! Even my engagement ring is a Mikimoto pearl surrounded by rubies and diamonds. I thought it would be nice to have Pearls & Lace as the blog theme this month since those are my two favorite things. Pictured above are a variety of foundation rings with natural, cultured and Swarovski pearls. I typically do not use costume pearls, but Swarovskis are an exception. Glass pearls are mostly substandard to what I require in the way of quality. Swarovski pearls are the ONLY alternative I will use other than natural or cultured pearls.
Perhaps tomorrow I will have a few pendants tatted up to share with you. The foundations are calling me back to the Atelier. May you have a wonderful day and until tomorrow~
