Amazing True Tatting Story

One day last week (or there about) I was blogging like normal, one of my sights I visit is Westpine Creations. I enjoy looking at many pieces they make, and saw one that looks like a ring I have.  Well to make a long story short this is the end result, we made a trade!


I had some one else take the pictures, so hope fully you can see this necklace is better than expected!

She made a matching necklace to the pendent, because I don't like metal against my neck area, It breaks me out.

The talent here is incredible and viewing her pictures is nice, but doesn't show what fine thread this is really made with.  I feel sorry for people that cannot see it in person.
I have tried this metallic thread and did not like the way the slide did not cooperate, so I never tried it again.
West pine gets 5 gold stars from me!

This ring is made with what they call Rose Gold and this matched so well with the copper metallic thread :)
hopefully she will enjoy the shuttles I sent her but I feel I got the better deal!

  6. I tell ya this necklace was meant for me :) I had these glue on nails I bought a little bit ago and never put them on and so I all came together just for the picture and me! I am glad you like the bunny shuttles, they needed care and feeding :)

    1. Their bellies are full of metallic sewing thread, designing a new pendant. You need to go out, somewhere fancy.
