New Adventure in Tatting

Its been an extremely creative day.  I'm always trying to come up with new and creative ways of using my tatting, first it was tatting in silver wire, which was a big hit.  Then I combined tatting with chainmail and my finished pieces got me to the finals in an international Jewelry competition.  Today, I finally figured out a way to combine my silver tatting with wire wrap jewelry designs.  I tatted Tatman's shuttle pattern in silver wire, added a swarovski crystal to the center and then set it into a sterling silver bracelet (which I made from 20 gauge square wire).  Next project is designing a pendant combining tatting and wire wrap.

I liked your pattern very much. Some of us don't want a lot of color in our jewely, depends on how busy the colors are in what we are wearing. years ago(middle80's) my pard and i enterted earrings in a contest with Fire Mountain. We won 3rd place in 2 differnet catagorries. If I remember correctly the prize was $20.00 per entry.
