I tatted the blues…

A recent custom request from a Snappy Tatter customer led me to working with greens and blues, not colors I normally work with except for leaves. I do have a nice collection of blues and greens from baby blue to navy to teal but my mind is always drawn to warm colors.

Sometimes working outside your normal palette forces you to use your color study skills to create something that is well coordinated. The main issue with this project was the customer’s choice of turquoise that is very bright and a forest green that is muted. This issue was solved with the customer’s choice of a variegated cord that drew the blue into the green gradually.

My customer proudly told me “Texas girls love lots of bling”. So I further blended the colors with hand sewn beading which is all Czech glass and Swaroski crystals.

The finished work is this lovely cool color Flair set of jewelry finished with Sterling jewelry components and silver organdy ribbon.

Live, Love, Tat!

  1. Hi there. I never use starch in my work. I use a clear sealant on end knots and to stiffen snow and 3-D work. I use the highest quality cordonnet which is very firm. And tatting is comprised of knots. It’s inherently firm. Thanks for asking! Glad you like it!
