I was planning to make an earrings but after finished this motif I decide to make a necklace. I am happy with the result.

This elegant necklace has been tatted in black %100 cotton thread ( Lizbeth). It features 51 jet black faceted beads. The focal bead is a large faceted black square crystal.

Lace Lover

(Motif Seventeen)

This shuttle tatted slave bracelet is made with black cotton thread and jet black faceted rondelles. 

The original pattern is an antique pattern that was used for edging on the table mats. The design, "Tatting with Two Threads", first published in The Queenslander  in 1937 . 

I modified this antique pattern and adapted it into a slave bracelet.

Peacock Green

(Motif Sixteen)

I love tatting with the beads. It looks very rich and stylish...
For this necklace, I combined three different techniques that use tatting, beading and ankars.

The multi-color metallic and gold polyester threads, peacock AB, teal blue-green faceted teardrop crystals, Japanese seed beads and fresh water pearls are used in this piece.

Black Lace Slave Bracelet

(Motif Fifteen)

I realize it's been a quite a while since I've done a blog post but I have a good reason. I have been busy creating some new pieces.
Black Lace Slave Bracelet is the one of them.

After working about a week of tatting, cutting out, picking out, re-tatting and adding some beads... Finally, I finished my long slave bracelet. Lizbeth threads in black and several sizes faceted jet black glass beads are used in this bracelet.
