It’s that time of year folks. There is snow flurrying outside my western Pennsylvania home as I write this! I have 10 Ornament styles that are custom made in my shop now. I plan to have more soon. The following Snappy Tatter designs can be made in two different sizes and several colors. Click each flake picture to be taken to my Etsy shop listing with more pictures and full descriptions including available sizes and colors.
All of these designs are listed with a quantity of 3 most of the time. Larger quantities can be made but will take additional time, just ask. New ideas are popping up in my head all the time so hopefully I will have some new designs listed soon. I thought, since snow is falling outside my window today, I would take the time to showcase all of the Flakes I have available for custom tatting. I also have a couple of Ice Crystals and Snowballs available too. Visit this shop section, Tatted Ornaments, to find both the made to order and read to ship ornaments that are currently ready for this season.
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!
Snappy Tatter Snow! In keeping with my Ice Crystal tradition, I embellished each Flake with exceptional one-of-a-kind glamor using Swarovski, Celestial and Czech crystals, glass beads and pearls and perfect Swarovski pearls in icy shades and Christmas colors. AB (Aurora Borealis) coating adds a brilliant multicolor shimmer to many of the glass beads.
These are Snappy Tatter original designs. The Ice Crystals and Snowballs I hand make each year are one-of-a-kind and limited edition, perfect for collecting and gift-giving!
Tatting is a knotted lace technique that is closest to micro-macrame. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of tiny knots are tied to form rings and chains. Beads are added one by one as the knots are tied or hand sewn into the finished Flake.
Visit my Etsy shop to view more photos of these and other tatted ornaments!
Yay! A milestone in Snappy Tatter-land. I just had my 400th sale!!! 🙂
I love round numbers!
And I finally have time to get the snow machine rolling around here. My newest Limited Edition Ice Crystal, No.33…crisp, snowy white embellished with Swarovski crystal. A Snappy Tatter original design!
This Flake just has to be lucky. 3 is my lucky number and my favorite. I was born 03/23/73. Seriously! At 4:14 AM. Crazy.
I have been working to update my snow page and have finally finished adding the links, photos and a little information about my history with tatted snow. You can find the new “Gallery of Tatted Snow” to the left. Or click HERE if you like. Continue reading →
I have been getting rather flaky around here. Snowflake-y! I made a flurry of little Dainty Flakes for pendants and earrings, four of which have already sold before I even listed them. The other four that are completed are here. You can click the photo to see more pics of these little delights.
More are coming soon. I have a nice little bag of unfinished Flakes to work on tomorrow when I get back into my studio including a multiple Dainty Flake necklace which is actually called Flurry. And more Cocktail rings are on their way. Pics are ready, descriptions and listings need written. Then I will share them all with you here.
Hope everyone is happy and healthy!
P.S. Don’t forget to enter in the November Dainty Flake Earrings Give-away! Details are here!
You know it figures that after I send out the November e-Newsletter earlier today directing my readers to the “growing Christmas Ornament section” I would go in and change the name of the section. Well, it’s now “Enjoy the Holidays”. I like it better. Sounds more inviting and I do an immense amount of work each year geared towards winter and the holidays. So I wanted to put those items together. It was fun to go through my inventory and just pick things that were white, silver, pale blue, red, green, snowflakes etc. and festive and put them all together for the next few months. I might just do that to celebrate each lovely season.
My readers are smart enough to figure out the Christmas Ornaments are in the Holiday section! Aren’t you all!
Question for anyone who would like to give me advice-I really value all of your feedback:
Would you prefer shopping through a themed (Christmas, winter, summer, floral) section with multiple types of items? Or would you prefer everything was categorized? (bracelets, earrings, cocktail rings, ornaments, fiber art)
I will always keep everything in categories but I am thinking one section that may have what visitors are looking for at the time might be helpful.
I would love to hear your input! Comment below or on Facebook or Tweet me!
