New Tatted Earrings and Pendants 4/25

Today is the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of the Queen,   she's been on the throne 60 years,  well I was not around to see it, but I have seen pictures of it,  I did a card for the CD Sunday Challenge in April for the challenge Majesty  and used the coronation as my card.  link to the card
Its a lovely day here in Somerset, although we have had more cloud for the second day in a row its warm,  is this summer at last well I do hope so,   sick of wind, rain cold, dull and dark days.

These earrings are something new I am  trying and I am very pleased with them,  this is the two layer tatted flower by Jennifer Williams,  I used white lizbeth and pink coats thread both no 20. I put seed beads around the outside of the flower.  The close up did not come up as clear as I would have liked so I hope you can see the two layers OK.

This pendant was made with the variation number two of the two layer tatted flower and I put a heart shape charm in the middle,  although small I really did like this flower I put seed beads on the outside of the top and second layer and one on each petal on the inner layer.  Next time I will make it a bit bigger and perhaps add a couple more layers to the outside.  This is the same thread Lizbeth white no 20.
Now for this pendant again its the coats pink no 20,  but I did a variation of Mary Butterfly which I have done before and added a gold bird charm in the middle.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying the sunshine long may it last,
Until we meet again Take care
