This is a pair of tatted earrings I've been playing around with. The thread is silver embroidery thread and it is by far my favorite metallic thread to tat with. I added dichroic glass. They are post style earrings.
So I made a new batch of copper shuttles and as I was taking them out of the kiln my "fireproof" glove caught on fire. I reacted swiftly and properly, thank goodness, so the flames were put out within a second and I was not burned....just a bit shaken up. Unfortunately only 1 out of 6 copper shuttles survived. I am bummed because days of work went into them. Aw well, you win some and you lose some and at least I am unharmed.
I have much to be thankful for.
