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.


  1. Way to go! The earrings go wonderfully with the pendants.

  2. So happy to see your perfect tatting and your amazing thread!

  3. WOW indeed! A pity I can't wear earrings - my ear lobes go all itchy when I do, :( .

  4. I love your jewelry sets! My favorite is the Berry Burst. It's so rich and juicy looking... makes my mouth water!

  5. Wow, just WOW! Those jewelry sets are stunning. (especially with the Swarovski crystals, but then I go weak-knee'd when I see jewelry crafted with this super-sparkley crystals)

    LOVE the Carnival set done in Rainbow Bright! Who am I kidding? I love them all!

  6. Oooh, you're back!! I haven't been around much myself, but I am so happy to see you posting again. Please stay this time. :)

    And I love that motif, too. Not familiar with the 'Happy Occhi' book. Now I must look for it.

  7. Your tatting is wonderful. It would be very hard to pick a favorite. All the colors are great.

  8. Your work is BEAUTIFUL! You are AMAZING! I have never seen this type of thing before. - just "happened" upon your blog. Lovely work. You are so creative! Nice blogspot!
