I love surfing the Internet to find out what others are doing to bring tatting into the public eye.
Recently, I connected with Ruth Mary in England, and she introduced me to her shop, ruthmary.com, and some videos about her lace jewelry.
Ruth Mary, like us, is fascinated by lace, and she used to spend time at antique fairs looking for the perfect piece of lace to add to her collection. Then... she discovered tatting!
Ruth Mary uses silk thread for her tatting, and then makes molds for beautiful jewelry in both silver and gold. My favorite is her rose gold paisley design, shown above. Or is it the silver? Maybe the gold. Oh, my... the choices are wonderful!
I love the names of her collections: Constellation Dream, Deco, Romantic Perfection, and The Classics.
Ruth Mary will even take your tatting and turn it into a beautiful piece of jewelry!
Hmmm... now I'm thinking about how I can take my tatting to a new level!
