Hold on to your hair everyone because today's giveaway is instant gratification and EVERYONE goes home with the prize.
Surprisingly for such simple looking pattern this took me weeks to get right. It has a folded ring in it so for those who haven't had the privilege of tatting one, now is your chance. It's a great pattern for using up that left over thread on your shuttles....and it tats up very quickly. Enjoy!
This was tatted in KrystleDawn's "Windbreaker".
I have been working a lot with precious metals in the studio and that got me to thinking about tatting with wire. I have done a lot of tatting OVER wire but have never tatted WITH wire. This is copper wire and it tats up as nicely as you could ever expect wire to tat up. I am playing around with it as I can see a lot of potential in its application, so we will see where this endeavor leads me.
Also, I am refining my skills with my new line of shuttles. They are incredibly expensive to make as one might expect when working in precious gems and metals so I have very little to no room for mistakes. I am very excited about what I have so far and I will be putting a couple up for sale real soon.
This is a ring that I made with a small portion of left over materials, I really love it. Now mind you, I am not in the jewelry making business and don't intend to branch off into what thousands of other people can do better than I, but it is good practice for my future shuttles.
