MOP Brooch Progress

Shabby Vintage Bridal
Good morning, dear readers!
I finally got the foundation found on the Mother-of-Pearl brooch to work out to my satisfaction!
I am using Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S9 "Herb Garden" with silver-lined forest green Ornella seed beads for accents.  Future possible accents are what I'm debating on now.  I have some gorgeous Swarovski crystals and also some beautiful dyed green freshwater pearls.  My mom said she doesn't care what I use.  "Just make it pretty," was my only instruction from her.  So, what do you think?  Should I just use the seed beads or should I add another type of accent?  My only concern is that I do not want the accents to compete with the beauty of the brooch itself.
Well, I have towels to get out on the clothesline and lots of tatting to do.  Have a wonderful day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!


  1. Sp pretty! I say go for more! The centre can handle it , I think.
    Fox : )

  2. It's gorgeous already!! :) Would natural color pearls go well and kind of compliment the center??? Just thinking. :)
    I am sure it will be outstanding whatever you do!! : )

  3. I think it would work with more beads, but not a great many. The pearls sound good interspersed with the beads.

  4. Your work looks great!! And I love the thread colour!! A few more beads would look great.

  5. That looks brilliant I look forward to seeing how you process love the colour of the thread.
