Here Fishy Fishy!!!

My second fish is swimming into Snappy Tatter-land! In lilac and peach with berry colored seeds and silver lined gold glass for a “pop”…this brilliant little fish turned out perfect! Fishy Fishy has perfect Swarovski crystals embedded in the tail and front fin. The rocailles that make the gold stripe along her back have a square hole making them more sparkly than regular round beads. I have made long Strand earrings that match, too!

Fishy Fishy is listed on Etsy in my J Kohr Couture section of my Etsy shop.

More work and news is coming to Snappy Tatter-land soon. I did not get into the magazine that had messaged me. That is fine. Although the Editor loved my work, the publisher was not as interested. The jewelry designers in the magazine are fabulous but the work is more traditional than my handmade lace. Still, it is nice to be noticed and she did ask me to submit pieces in the future if I am interested.

I am getting through the most difficult part of the year with my chronic illness a little easier because of the nerve blocks I get. So that is good news.  I hope I can stay on top of Snappy Tatter things better. I just try to take it day by day. God gives me what I need and I try to be as helpful to my fellows as possible! Everything works out better when I live that way!

Live, Love, Tat!

New earring listings in my Etsy shop!

I’ve spent the past few days listing several pairs of new earrings of my simplest design; Strand, Drips, Frilly and Flash Drips and Drops. Frequently these earrings are made from the remaining 1/2 yard of cord that is on my shuttles after finishing larger designs. Instead of cutting and throwing away the ends I tat a couple of rings and create small, elegant, earrings that are very popular in my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter.

Upcoming ArtFest work!

The New Castle Arts festival is quickly approaching. On July 11th and 12th I will be displaying all of my work for 30,000+ people to see. The energy is always exciting but the work involved to prepare is intense. I am in the process of evaluating what I already have and what else I need to have to create a full display that showcases my abilities. As promised, I am displaying work here that will go to the festival and will not be listed in my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter, unless it comes back with me. For newcomers that are exploring my website for the first time, all of my work is handmade, shuttle-tatted lace. I am a professional fiber artist and tatted lace designer. My patterns are original in design and embellishment.

Mark you calendars peeps and come see me! Here are a few of the designs you will see:

~NEW! The Fearless Grace Cuff~

This wide lace cuff was going to be a watch band but I fell in love with the look and decided to create a bracelet. Part of my new “Simply Lace” collection, there was no need for beads, crystals or pearls to make this design spectacular! Shuttle-tatted with black 100% Egyptian cotton cordonnet and finished with a Sterling toggle clasp, it measures 6.5″ long x 2.5″ wide.

~Pulse~

This is an older design revisited. The tatting is dense and tight. The lace is slightly raised and nearly opaque in charcoal gray. I will not be recreating this pattern in this manner again as it ended up more complicated than the original Pulse design. Because it is one-of-a-kind, it will become part of my J Kohr Couture collection. It is finished with patterned ribbon ends, a magnetic clasp and a short, gunmetal colored, security chain. It measures 7″ long x 0.75″ wide.

~Leaf Trio~

Two small Aspen leaves with a larger Birch leaf in between, this small bracelet was an experiment to see what a row of tatted leaves would look like as a bracelet. Shuttle-tatted in medium charcoal gray and embellished with pewter Czech Glass, this bracelet blends contemporary with organic design. The leaf designs are my own and were my first attempt to make realistic appearing leaves. Tweaked over time, the leaf patterns were finalized a couple of years ago. Measuring 5.75″ long and 1.25″ at its widest point, this bracelet will be perfect for a slender wrist. The jewelry components are gunmetal plated including the hook and eye clasp.

~The Debutante~

A fan favorite classic design, this version was tatted in cream cordonnet and finished with gold plated jewelry components. A single, matching, Swarovski crystal pearls drops from the center of this frilly design. Gold beads and beadcaps create an elegant look. Meant to be a choker, the Debutante measures 13″ long by 0.50″ wide and has a 2″ gold chain extension for a perfect fit. I always add a little bead at the end of the extension chain…I think it finishes the necklace perfectly. I did not take pictures of me modeling the next two necklaces…I am suffering through allergies and looked a little rough yesterday. And I am always my own model cause I work for peanuts. Ha ha!

~Halo~

One of my favorite combinations of colors is any shade of blue/green and brown. This simple necklace was tatted in fudge brown and hand-beaded in turquoise colored Howlite. Each bead has fluted or flower gunmetal beadcaps on each end and a large flat disc hangs from the center of crossed picots. I love the colors and the brown veins on the beads.

I hope you have enjoyed the gallery. I was able to spend a little more time chatting while I wait for my allergy meds to work so I can go garden on this nice day. I will be back soon with two new outstanding Couture pieces you won’t want to miss. Have a lovely day everyone!

Live, Love, Tat!

A little bit of custom work…

I always enjoy collaborating with customers to get the colors, size and style they would like from my wearable work. This request was for a dainty little floral design with a teeny butterfly on board and matching butterfly earrings. My tiny PIXIE butterfly earrings are the simplest design with the cutest appeal. I created an even teenier version to rest on this boysenberry colored flower that is surrounded by a few simple leaves creating a nice asymmetrical design. The pearl centers are Swarovski crystal pearls. The cable necklace is handmade and the jewelry components are all Sterling silver and silver plated.

Thought you might like a peek into what I worked on today. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind Snappy Tatter creation!

Live, Love, Tat!

Adams Ridge Holiday Show

This is where I will be this coming weekend peeps! All work that is available in my shop that is not Made to Order will be there with me. So you can actually see it in 3-D reality and touch it too. And if you really like it you can take it home with you for the fee on the tag plus a little tax so the misers of the State can get their share. 😀 All Made to order listings will remain in my shop and be available to purchase through the event. Ready made items will not be available online from Friday to some time on Sunday after I recuperate from all the excitement.

And I have great news: I will be able to take credit cards on the spot thanks to Intuit’s GoPayment app! Yahoo! I hope to see my local peeps there. And if you are the adventurous type and would like to come for the event, I can recommend a nice hotel for you to stay in. Happy Holiday shopping you crazy people!

Golden Bridal Jewelry

As I have said before, I love working for brides! From my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter, I have designed more jewelry for brides and their bridal parties this year than any other. This set turned out to be particularly spectacular. The bride’s request was 3 jewelry sets for her bridesmaids in a golden yellow and creamy ecru. I added ivory glass beading and ivory Swarovski pearls to turn it into some serious lace jewelry with Sterling Silver jewelry components. I gave the bride many options as she wanted every piece of jewelry to be different. She chose designs that coordinated perfectly. She has a very good eye.

First I made a MOD cuff and Decadence earrings. Small gold Swarovski pearls were added to the center motif as well.

~

The second set was the Flirtation bib necklace and Indulgence earrings. The thread colors were dark gold, medium gold and ecru.

~

The third set, a Flair Trio bib necklace and Bounce earrings. All designed to coordinate with the other two sets.

I love this work. It is so richly colored, warm and unique.
