I've finally listed my first set

Afternoon. It's lovely and sunny outside. I've had quite a productive week and have listed a couple of items over on Etsy.

The first is the Lillian necklace. This matches my bracelet and earrings of the same name. It's taken me a while to come to this final design. I first tried with just the central section but it looked too small for a necklace. I then tried three sections of the same size but this didn't work either. I've finally settled on a large central section with two smaller sides. Each part has seed beads and Swarovski Crystals hanging down. This my first time trying a design where three split rings are used to attach it to the ribbon and I really like it. I might try more like this in the future. As you can see in the picture below it hangs really well. 


This would look gorgeous with a sparlky evening dress. I've also decided to list this as a set with my earrings and bracelet. These items can also be tatted in other colours.


I've also created a set without the earrings for those of you without your ears pierced.

At the moment I'm working on a tatted cuff. I shall talk about this soon.

I adore your work!

Do you use a shuttle or needle? I've been trying to teach myself tatting with a needle and it's been SO difficult because the majority of tutorials (youtube, books, etc) are for the shuttle.

Beautiful set. I just adore your lace. So delicate and sheer. Keep it up, I'm waiting for more work.

Thank you for these lovely comments :)

Monica - I use a shuttle. I know how you must feel. I had a similar problem when I first started tatting. All the books I have show how to tat for a right-handed person. Being a leftie everything is backwards for me :) Took a time to work out where I was going!

The set is beautiful! And the necklace definitely works really well with the larger central piece and the 2 smaller designs on either side.. very nice!
