New work for sale! I’ve been busy.

Wave bracelet

I recently finished some of my raw lace into jewelry and listed it for sale on Etsy. Above is my new design Halo Wave. The curved bracelet can be worn with the arch facing you or facing away from you. It’s a nice flexible design made from the highest quality cotton tatting cordonnet. Black, charcoal and silver strands of Halo Wave are connected together and hand beaded with silver glass pearls and gunmetal silver-lined Czech glass seed beads.

I also finished 3 new Cocktail rings. Aster in white with yellow Aurora Borealis coated glass beads and a large AB crystal is a new ring design. Aurora Borealis coating adds a beautiful mutilcolor shine to glass beads. It is a double layered cup flower that is small and cute. Mounted permanently on an adjustable base it will fit anyone as all of my Cocktail Rings do.

Two new Flair Cocktail Rings were also finished, one in variegated shades of off white and another in black. The white ring was made from a lightly variegated thread called “mocha latte” and is beaded with cream colored seeds around the edges. Swarovski crystal pearls in white are hand beaded through the rings of the design with a large one for the center. It is mounted permanently on a silver tone adjustable base. The black version has pewter fringe beads tatted around the edge and is embellished with hematite tubes and a blue Czech glass bead center. Mounted on a gunmetal colored adjustable base it is perfect for everyday wear or for you best little black dress.

Two new ready to ship pins are available now as well. The popular Diana 3D stickpin was made in Azalea pink with fine silver lined Czech glass beading in the wingtips. A large pink Swarovski crystal pearl adorns the center. The stickpin she is mounted on is Sterling Silver and 2.75″ long. She is perfect for a jacket, collar, hat, scarf or to add an interesting pop of color to whatever you are wearing. I have a purple Diana stickpin that I frequently wear on my small button up sweaters. She stays 3D forever. I made a new PIXIE butterfly pin too. In heavy weight white tatting cordonnet, I beaded around her entire wings with lavender matte glass beads. The process is tedious as I bring one bead at a time into the lace as the knots are tied. She has a small Swarovski crystal pearl in her center, is stiffened to remain 3D, and is mounted on a small tie tac style gold pin base. Both are fun little flourishes!

Another new design has come to Snappy Tatter-land! Empress is a gorgeous ornate shuttle-tatted cuff that is available in black. I made an orange one for myself too. I wrote about it in yesterday’s post “I forgot the pattern :p”. 35 overlapping rings make the scalloped center. There are 3 more rounds of tatting that are very fine and interesting. You won’t find anything like this anywhere else because I have the secret pattern now. πŸ™‚ Durable, elegant and detailed, it is worthy of royalty!

I am having a great time settling into my new HUGE studio and creating new works again. There is still a lot to do with the house, like hanging pictures and unpacking some non-essential boxes, but we are happy here. The weather is sooooooo much better than Idaho. We don’t go straight from summer to winter and back. Lol. I love having four seasons again. It is warmer here than where I grew up in PA and the growing season is longer. This is great for Jay who is ready to plant his garden! He already has starts of cucumbers, melons and lots of corn. We will be up to our ears in veggies. The guinea piggies will be happy!

I have been struggling with my chronic clusters again but I found a very sympathetic and knowledgeable Neurologist here that understands my plight. He supports my current regimen of shots, oxygen and pills to control attacks and I am truly grateful for that. Outside of working in my new studio, caring for my guinea pigs and doing my nails all the time, I have taken up playing the flute again. I used to play in high school and thought I might enjoy it again. I was right. I am zooming through my beginner’s book and practicing almost daily. Jay gets short concerts on Sundays. He is happy that I am happy.

You can look forward to more new work soon and posts about my life here in our new home.

In the meantime, you can use “SHOPSNAPPYTATTER” as a coupon code for 10% off your purchase in my Etsy shop!

Have a blessed day!

Live, Love, Tat!

The Queen’s Lace-ta da!

NEW J Kohr Couture cuff…The Queen’s Lace is glamorous luxury jewelry. This elegant cuff is hand beaded with matching Czech glass seed beads, Swarovski Crystal Pearls, Swarovski clear crystals, and Celestial multi-faceted clear crystals. The center pattern is my Infinity bracelet. I added two more rounds of shuttle-tatting to create an ornate design. The seed beads were added as I tatted. A time consuming process of drawing up a bead one at a time between knots. The highest quality crystals and glass pearls were hand sewn securely into the lace after the cuff was created.

I often think of what the design reminds me of while I am creating new lace designs. This cuff is so elegant I could only think it was fit for royalty…thus the name, The Queen’s Lace. This would be perfect for a formal affair. The silver color is easily coordinated with any outfit. I think it would be magnificent for a bride. I do a lot of work for brides each year and they often want matching tatting for their bridesmaids. The base pattern, Infinity, could be a simpler matching option that is perfect for the bridesmaids. I am always happy to collaborate with anyone who is interested in custom work. Just ask! As with all J Kohr Couture designs, this one is one-of-a-kind. The pattern may be recreated but the style of beading is exclusively Couture.

I am in love with this design. A true labor of love, it was well worth the time to create something so elegant and shimmery. Let me know what you think in a comment below. Any questions? visit the link under the main photo for all the information on this cuff.

On another note, I am having a Spring Sale of 20% off select items in my Etsy shop right now. Visit my sale section to find everything from pendants, fiber art, earrings, bracelets and ornaments that have been marked down. Come visit my shop. Mother’s Day is coming and handmade shuttle-tatting makes a perfect and unique gift that is sure to make your Mom feel special!

Live, Love, Tat!

A drive over doublesprings pass.

We like to travel the mountains. It soothes our souls and resets our brains when there has been a lot going on. Here in the high desert of Arco, Idaho, we are already a mile high. And we are surrounded by various mountain ranges, desert, buttes, and a river called the Little Lost River because at some point it disappears into the earth. It adds up to endless opportunities to explore. Here are a few photos from our journey over the pass and back on the highway going home.

Snappy Tatter, my online shop!, is up and running again. My wedding was lovely and I will have photos soon.

Over the next couple of days, I will be changing listings that have free shipping back to their appropriate shipping category so feel free to take advantage of what remains labeled as “free domestic shipping” while I get it changed.

Live, love, tat!
