Cotton or polyester threads are perfect for tatting, they are so smooth and tightly twisted. I also love metallic threads in lace jewelry.
Unfortunately, there is no metallic thread made just for tatting, so you need to spend more attention to working with the metallic thread. Anyway, I love metallic thread effects.
The earrings and the hand accessory are tatted in silver metallic thread with blue jades, blue and clear crystals.

I designed and shuttle tatted this necklace in polyester thread and I used black diamond crystals and grayish green rondelles in different sizes and shapes.
The necklace is containing more than 600 crystals.
The necklace has adjustable chain and clasp so, it can be worn high like a choker or you can wear it lower like a necklace.

Chaorite is called a “Stone of Transformation” and is a stone of power.
I bought several gemstones from the bead show but Charoite was more expensive than other beads. The reason is;
It is a rare mineral and it is only found in a single location in the world, Russia. That’s why is called Russian Chaorite. It is very beautiful stone...
I tried some different designs for this gemstone but it didn't fit any of them because of the bead sizes. Finally, I decided to use this pattern and I am pleased with the result.

I finished a new original tatting necklace and earrings set. I've completed the necklace by using the "Lacy Life Swirl" motifs.
I shuttle tatted with polyester, metallic, silk threads combination and I used silver night color Swarovski crystals in different sizes.
The beaded extender gives flexibility that can be worn high like a choker or you can wear it low like a necklace.

My new, original design tatting lace necklace and earrings are ready for any occasion to be worn, taking a couple weeks to complete it.
I might have to add a matching bracelet to this set later on. The bracelet pattern still is a sketch in my drawing notebook.
I said “new original design” but actually I corrected that, I modified my earlier “ Butterfly” necklace pattern.
I've used Lizbeth size 10 in black cordonnet, cube square crystal glass beads.

I haven’t posted in awhile because, I was on the KHOU News two weeks ago. Great Day Houston producers selected me as one of the featured local artist participating 43rd Bayou City Arts Festival in Houston. The show and the festival went very well.
After the event, I started to make a new inventory for the next one. I have already several designing ideas, but you know that it takes plenty of time. "Symphony" is the one of them and it is my original design.
I tatted with two strands of polyester threads in blue and pale silver color with fire polished opaque Amazon blue rondelle, fresh water pearl, fire polished faceted black diamond crystals and faceted round smoky quartz beads.
Three round, Genuine Amazonite are used in focal motif.
