Olde West Inspiration
Good afternoon, dear readers!
I had originally intended to post this morning, but got seriously pre-occupied with another tatting project.  It might be ready to show you later this week.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you what I tatted this weekend.  Meet "Celestine":
Celestine was tatted with Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S49 and has crystal AB Swarovski accents, along with crystal turquoise Czech seed beads.  This pendant was inspired by an image of a lovely evening gown from the 1870's I saw featured in a vintage/antique fashion magazine article.  The dress was an ivory color and was festooned with delicate light turquoise colored floral embroidery.
As I mentioned, there are a number of various tatting projects and prototypes that are demanding my attention in the Atelier.  Guess I had better get back to it as there is so much to do.  Hope you have a wonderful day and please let me know your opinions on Celestine in the comment section.  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
