Good morning, dear readers!
Just got Jim off to work for the day and thought I'd go ahead and do my blog post before I get busy with the day's activities. I was sifting through my pearls this weekend and decided to do a little pendant with one of the gorgeous disc pearls I purchased several months back:
It was needle tatted with Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in "Herb Garden" and is accented with silver-lined forest green Ornella seed beads and 3mm crystal AB Swarovski bicones, along with a little pinecone charm.
This is how the piece began:
I beaded around the disc pearl and securely knotted the thread before commencing tatting.
This is the first round. It was inspired by a design I did a few years back using some handmade dichroic glass disc beads. I personally prefer pearls, but the dichroic disc beads were lovely. Wish I had some more of them.
Well, I had better get myself together for the busy day ahead. Rosie Fey is scheduled to have her stitches removed and I can finally bathe her this evening. Believe me, she needs it!!! Jocelin and I have some shopping to do for her summer classes and I need to pick up more chicken feed. May you have a wonderful day full of creativity & until tomorrow~
