Needle Tatting and glass beads - Choker - Bridal

I have finally started on my bridal range...

This is a needle tatting choker with half the pattern as choker and the other half spreads on the upper chest.

The fastening is with organza ribbon and the tails of the ribbons ends in a tatted/beaded circle which falls down the back. It is ivory colour.








The fastening


And this is the tails of the ribbon which falls lose - depending on how big the bow is it falls anywhere between mid shoulder blades to lower back

Hand made travel backgammon set

Board: Made with felt and I made patterned stamps with cardboard and rubber for where the pieces sit on the board
Bag: Felt (Buttons of the bag are made with left over clay from the pieces)
Pieces and the dice: Polymer clay

Story:
A good friend of mine who now lives abroad is visiting England and is coming to me this week with his new lovely bride.
Twenty-odd years ago, I taught him backgammon...and he became so good at it that I lost every game to him after a while. And every few years that he comes here and visits me, we have at least a few fierce 5 set games.

So 'for the good old times' I made this travelling backgammon set to give him when he comes here.
The pieces have his initial stamped in them.
