Welcome to my blog. I'm a designer of Medieval, Renaissance, Tudor and gothic inspired tatted jewellery. I'm also a goth who can be quite geeky at times. Here I shall be writing about my online business and the subjects that interest me, including music, films, anime, books, all things gothic and crafty stuff. Enjoy.
First of all I'd like to say a big thank you to Claire from Created and Felted for including my Fleur earrings in a blog post about her wedding pouches. I've put the link on the left so you can all have a look. They really are the cutest pouches :)
I've been working on a couple of ideas and new patterns this week, some of which are now finished while others are still a work in progress. I'm closer to working out the best way of creating my choker. I know this has been a long time coming but I promise you it will be worth it.
I've been thinking about new colour combinations for my jewellery. I recently bought dusky pink and chocolate brown balls and, having done a test piece, I think I might be using them together. The pink may even work with the black.
There are some other things in the pipeline but I think I'll talk about those at some other point.
Now on to my new listings:
The first piece I'd like to talk about is a new necklace design, well a reworking of one of my other designs. I decided to tat just over half of my Katherine piece and then created three more, joining them as I went. This is similar to my Helena necklace (that uses the Eleanor pattern). I included jet Swarovski Crystals (two bicone pendants and two faceted drops) around the central part. Below is the result. What do you think?
I'm thinking of doing this in other colours and maybe two colours together. Any suggestions? You can buy the piece here and in pounds here.
The next is a pair of earrings. I decided to create a black pair using my Fleur design:
These would work well with a goth outfit or an evening dress. Check them out here and for those of you in the UK here.
On a completely different note, did any of you in the UK see the last episode of Ashes To Ashes last night? I was in shock by the end. I don't think anyone could have worked out the twist. I was actually crying my eyes out after I had looked at the comments people were making on twitter. Don't worry, I wont give away the ending if you have yet to see it. It ties up all the loose ends nicely and was an amazing finale. I'm actually tempted to go back and watch it again.
