Adding the WOW factor!

So far so good
I LOVE all of my new pendants.
I thought....
I need Earrings to match....
well obviously!

I have both of Marilee's Jewellery Books...
Tatted Jewelry.

Having  uumm...hd and aaaa...hd as to which I should do first....
I settled on Carnival Earrings from Tatted jewelry...listed as a beginners project.
so here goes....
Next pendant in RAINBOW BRIGHT My all time Favourite of My Threads.
The Pendant 
....and the earrings....
This is one of those WOW moments...
I love the way the colours just follow one after the other,just the way that I intended them to.
The red Wonder Bead is gorgeous  too....
....The Set

The pendant need a red Wonder bead in the center, I think.
Lovely to wear.
Remember the pendant that I made in Sweet the very first of these pendant posts?
Well that colourway got the earring treatment too.
You actually already saw me wearing them on my Birthday Canal Boat trip.

Finally my third favourite thread is Berry here goes....

....which also strangely enough goes really well with what I wear....
the silver beads against the dark thread simple glow against my skin.....
.....and with the earrings is just gorgeous....
I used Swarovski Bicones and top drilled Swarovski drops and gosh do they sparkle!
This was the very last of my Berry Burst so you can guess what I am dyeing now!
See you soon with a new colourway I have to show you.

Even MORE!

This pattern was so addictive......I have given them to all my relatives and friends and still can't stop!!
Some colourways are working better than others .
Just personal preference and what I have to wear them with.
 Everyone I gave them too had their own different preferences,which was cool.
Next up was Gina's Tequila Sunrise.....
 This time I used silver lined transparent beads and they really made the colours zing!
So that's what I have used on all the colourways since then.

 Next to tat were the ChocoRaspberry family( made to make your mouth water)!
We already saw Raspberry Ripple with Vanilla in the previous post.

This looked really lovely with another 'random' T-Shirt from my ever growing collection!
You can now see how the beads add zing.
But the next two in the ChocoRaspberry Family would look equally well.
All the colouways seem to come to life against skin!
Raspberry Sorbet...
......Raspberry and Chocolate Mousse.

Come back soon to see my all time favourites
