Earrings, Bracelets and a Cross 3/25


 Hi,
Its a Bank holiday here in the UK,  the sun is now shining after a wet yesterday morning, so hopefully the rest of the weekend will be good.

I start with these earrings, they are the snowflake from the Tat along mat by Renulek,  I used the Atkin Basak Thread No 50 and they make a great earring,   I used light turquoise with gold beads which I am still not sure about and dark turquoise with silver beads.  As I was tatting the snowflake on the mat it said to me earring,   So what do you think, Vernon said they were too big and no one will wear them, but at the moment big jewellery is in.

 The bracelets are the Classic Edge pattern by Marilee Rockley I used Lizbeth white and black thread No 20.
The white has dark beads with multi colours and the black has gold beads.


Lastly the cross which I used the light and dark turquoise thread from the earrings,  the pattern is from the Pattern Collection by Mary Konior book.
This is the 3rd of the 25 Motif tatting challenge.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend,   we are off to Oxford later,  so whatever you are doing enjoy your weekend.

Until we meet again Take Care.



                                      Hugs
                       Margaret

  3. You've been quite productive lately, Margaret. I agree with you that big jewelry is very popular right now, but does that mean you don't intend to wear them yourself?

    1. I have shoulder length hair so they would get tangled up in it, Yes I should wear my earrings especially when selling them. I love earrings but now my hair is longer I keep forgetting to put them on.

  5. I think the black bracelet looks very elegant. Hope you had a good trip to Oxford. It rains pretty much every afternoon here. Hot and humid is all we get, I am afraid.
