I had a few teal colored pearls to make another pendant. Forgot to add the top ring for the jump ring, so added the jump ring to the picot. I don't like doing it this way, it's not as strong. But, it's a pendant so not much wear on the pendant. That's what you get, while watching an old western movie.

I found a few spools of, that old, crochet thread on E-Bay. It had a Ben Franklin on the price sticker. Have to ask my parents to check it out, when they go up north. For those who are going to give this thread a try, it is not that easy to work with. You need to tat a little looser and it won't work for needle tatters. Metallic sewing thread is smoother to work with. I do like this thread, I like the thicker look. The lot of thread had both gold and silver spools. I liked the Egyptian Collection so much, I had to make a pendant in silver.
For sale on West Pine Creations.

I was leery about Tatsmithing around cameos. I was afraid too much would get covered up. This, beautiful, shell cameo was a special order. Not too much was covered...whew!! The customer is going to add beads once she receives it.

Lay It and Leave It
My oil painting teacher was always saying, "Lay it an leave it." Some tend to overwork their painting and ends up getting muddy. Initially, I was going to add another round with beads. But after the second round, I liked the simplicity of it....lay it and leave it, was ringing in my head.
This pretty pin was at a thrift store. Tatted with Lizbeth, size 20, boysenberry and measures 1.5" X 1.75"
