Tudor Tatting: A Work in Progress Part 2
Good evening. Brrr it's cold. We are hopefully getting some snow soon but who knows. I shall now continue with my work in progress.
The outer motif
I've decided to use claret and black for the outer motif. Here is the start of it. The black really gives it a nice border. As you can see, I've used the same motif as in the middle.
Here is where I am up to at the moment. I decided to add glass teardrop beads to give it a truly Tudor feel. This motif is quite large so it will definitely have to be a choker rather than a necklace.
What do you think so far? This would also look great in black. Once I've finished the prototype I shall do it in other colours.
Have a great day.
I really like the shape this is taking on. And the colors are so elegant. I think the black on the outside is a nice touch!! Can't wait to see the finished piece!! Good Luck!!

At the risk of sounding like a broken record (Do people still know what those are?), I really like how this is coming along. The shape is elegant and the colors are stunning. Normally I am not a big fan of large teardrop beads, but they look great on this! (As you say, they give it a truly Tudor feel.)
Please keep up the wonderful work! I'll be watching with eager anticipation.
