Playing with rings

Well, I've been very busy tatting this week.
Got an idea, inspired by how
Iris has used the rings in her earrings.
Loved the dimensional effect she created
and I just couldn't stop myself from doing this.

Rings on rings.....
Got it correct after a lot of tries,
Made it into a bracelet

Here's a closer look at the lock

(I'm loving the play with wires too!)


Trying to add some more of the 3rd dimension to tatting


Puffed up swirling rings.
Again made it into a bracelet

and of course, the lock

See those puffed up rings?
I think I'm going to try this out with beads next.

And Finally
My Swirling Heart

Same on both sides.....
Another look at a differnt angle?

That could make a pretty locket......

So, what do you think?

I love what you've done with Iris's idea! The bracelets are beautiful and the heart would make a wonderful pendant.

I cannot believe how prolific a tatter you are! These are amazing, and, of course, I am very partial to those closures. Hard on your hands, but sooo pretty!
