Tatting Ideas evolving

This tatted necklace is the product of my "grapes/lilacs edging" evolution. This time I tatted over some heavy duty nylon coated stainless steel wire to give this piece some body and durability. I added beads to the flowers and used Marilee's hand dyed size 80 thread.

Don't you think this would be a perfect "Something Blue" for a bride?
Anyhow, I know that you, my tatting friends, know how much work goes into a piece like this. I am very pleased with the end product and cannot wait to do the next one.
This is my first tatted item to go up for sale in my Etsy shop.

I think this is quite lovely and innovative, as usual. Any bride would be proud to wear it, as would most anyone else. Good luck with selling it, but I don't know how you can bear to part with it.

Wow! This is such a creative piece. And size 80! Tatting over wire is a really good idea to give a piece more body; I'm going to have to try that sometime. Oh, and some of that thread looks familiar....
