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.

It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s a Snappy Tatter Bumblebee!

Just a thought…a request from a Snappy Tatter follower…a yellow and black bumblebee! She wanted something more cartoonish. But no matter how hard I try…cartoonish is not in my nature. I thought this guy was pretty silly as is. A couple tweeks to the wing portion of the pattern and I will have a new critter to add to my works. Fun, fun, fun! I think this guy will become a brooch first. Then, who knows where he will pop up! His name is Bumble and he is currently on my drafting table waiting for me to get back to work in my studio. In about another week Snappy Tatter-land will get back to normal. In the meantime, I will be blogging and posting to facebook frequently since I am still post-surgery chair bound and now I am conscious most of the day!

I am thinking a new Give-away contest is coming soon. Thank you, everyone, for your well wishes. My shop will be opening again soon. Stay tuned!

Live, Love, Tat!
