I Found a Loophole

I found a loophole in my promise. My wife made promise her several years ago to stop buying her jewelry, not because she didn't like my choices, but because with all my medical bills we couldn't afford for me to buy her anymore jewelry.
The promise I made doesn't include not making her jewelry. So since she loves pearls I played around with some simple designs and ended up with a pearl bracelet and earrings tatted in silver wire, I even made the clasp and findings. She can't wait to wear them to Church on Sunday.
On the down side the staph infection in my leg has grown significantly this week and is weeping like crazy. I would appreciate everyone's prayers. Staph is a dangerous thing to play with.

I hope you get well soon! Your gift to your wife is WONDERFUL!! Your tatting with silver is AMAZING I at one point tried tatting with thin wire and gave it up very fast.
I do hope your leg gets better soon, sending prayers and good vibes your way

Those are so elegant!
And it's more special to receive something you put time and energy into than just buying it :)
Thanks for the comment on my blog.
Have a great day! Sue :)
