Tatting the days away while wearing out my chair…

As many of you know, I have been under the weather with my seasonal asthma attack. It’s going on 2 weeks now since I got sick and up until the last 2 days it has been kicking my ass. While I recuperate from the insidious meds I have to take that make me both better and worse, I thought I would share a simple gallery of fresh work. All of these items can be found in my online shop, Snappy Tatter. Eventually I will be back at my drafting table finishing all the tatting that I have been creating while I have been stuck in my chair awake 21 hours a day. Then I will have a really big gallery to share!

One of my simplest and favorite styles, the Flash Drips:

My new “Grace” style in silver:

Grace with glass Swarovski pearls

I am currently working on a very tedious off white version of Grace that will be a bracelet that is delicate and feminine.

¬† A new Halo bracelet with heavier cord, large glass pearls and a Sterling toggle clasp. I’m thinking bridal jewelry, simple yet elegant.

Vivien Butterfly in gold with gold stickpin

Wisp earrings in mint green with matching glass pearls and silver-lined rocailles:

Soon I will add photos of 9 pointed medallions I have been designing for a fellow fiber artist in Oregon. I am also working on a new Phoenix design for a customer that should be finished and photoed at the beginning of the week. It is a simpler version to fit her budget  better as this fully beaded design is very labor intensive. I try to be accommodating when it is possible in my jewelry designs.

I am working on tatted roses, which I will return to after I post this. And I am very close to finishing a nice, comfy, heavy poncho for winter. And no, it is not tatted! That would be insanity. It is crocheted, which can be a refreshing change for me from time to time. It’s sooooo much faster.

Don’t forget to get your Free Dainty Flake Snowflake this month! Make any purchase from my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter and start trimming your tree early with a wee snowflake from me! Just leave me a message during checkout that you would like your Flake and I will include it in your order!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
