New flower design

Good afternoon.

First of all: After 7 years of loving the book series, the TV adaptation of Game of Thrones will finally premiere on Sky Atlantic in 6 hours time (9pm). I'm ridiculously excited and feel like Christmas has come early so I may be on cloud 9 tomorrow morning on twitter. Just an advance warning.

Now on to the main point of this post. For the last week I've been working hard on a new hair flower design. This idea came pretty much fully formed which is always nice. Sometimes I have to make a few prototypes to get it how I want it but not with this. It's a bit more open that my 'Rosetta' piece. I've decided to combine tatting, organza fabric and felt to create different layers. Here is a sneak peek of the lilac flower:

I've just completed a black and purple hair flower using this pattern and shall start listing them tomorrow. I'm also thinking of making them as brooches and maybe wrist corsages but that's for another post.

Have a nice Monday,

New choker

Good evening.

I have a new listing for you all. 'Cassandra' - a tatted gothic choker (click the picture to see more on Etsy).

This design comes from my bridal headband but instead of the ribbon going through the piece, I've threaded it through two tatted rings at the back.

It took a while to make as I used tiny seed beads but I think it works well. This can be created in other colours.

I think this would look great with a corset or perhaps a Victorian costume.

I have more choker ideas that I'll probably try next week. 

Have a nice weekend,
