Snappy Tatter is having a sale till 9/6/21! FREE SHIPPING on all domestic US orders. Minimum order of 3 items. The discount will be applied at checkout in my Etsy shop!
Thought I would take a moment to showcase my latest J Kohr Couture design, Garden Watch IX. It sold within a day of being listed but there will be more coming soon.
I have made 10 watches so far. This one was a real treat to design. The watch face is extra large at 2″ wide. It is an antique Betsy Johnson watch I found at a garage sale. I love the rose gold flowers on the face and the bright pink embellishments of the second hand and side button. I tried to coordinate my design with these features.
The base tatting is a split ring design attached directly to the face. It is edged on both sides with a variegated cordonnet that transitions from brown to green to blue. The edging also has matte olive colored seed beads. The vine of small leaves that weaves its way along the band and side of the face also has matte seed beads. It is permanently attached to the side of the face as well. The flowers in dark pink, purple and lavender, are embellished with clear and Aurora Borealis Swarovski Crystals that are 2mm and 3mm in size. The purple flowers also have pink bugle beads tatted into their design. A final little surprise on this band is the bright red PIXIE Butterfly with a yellow Swarovski Crystal center. She is permanently affixed to the watch face.
All of the tatting is mounted on a light leaf green cotton band and secured with hand sewing and an industrial resin. All flowers are stiffened and waterproofed. Metal jewelry components that match the band and face are added along with an extension chain and lobster clasp for a secure fit. A new battery was added before I packaged it in a white box and shipped the watch. There is access to the back of the watch face to change the battery.
I hope you love it! I will make new Garden Watches soon. They are very labor intensive and the perfect one-of-a-kind accessory. This is something you won’t find anywhere but Snappy Tatter!
Come shop the sale! Buy whatever you like and forget the shipping costs. Sale will end at the end of the day on 9/6.
Live, Love, Tat!
