Dragonfly

Dragonfly

     This is another pin, I found at an antique show.  The tatting was done with Lizbeth, size 20, azelea.

    1. That would be pretty. I tat a foundation row first then the decorative row.

    2. Thank you for the tip, You are really getting good at adding tatting to jewelry and I don't work with jewelry that much. I also like how you added carefully the small amount of beads too.

    3. You can draw out a design before you start. This may help you with bead placement. Before I load up a shuttle, I'll add lots of beads. Then, I'll add some beads to the shuttle and leave the rest on the ball. After the foundation row is completed, I'll start tatting the second row, adding beads as I go. Here is the link to my blog, on how I work a piece of jewelry:

      Don't be afraid to ask any questions. Can't wait to see what you make with it.

  2. The thread color goes very well with the jewels in the pin - great job! A very, very pretty pin.

  3. You are starting to convince me that beautiful things can be made even more beautifulwith some tatting added. I will have to try it!
    Have a great 2014!
