nuntium quinquagesimum et secundum (52nd post) snow in MN

We tried another Oovoo together last night, it worked well for three of us but the others for a variety of reasons weren't able to join us.  Technology is wonderful when it works.
We're supposed to get snow tonight but I've been working on it for awhile.  I'd been working on a bracelet which I dunked in mint tea but it just wasn't right.  Frivole made some brilliant suggestions so after taking those into account, here's what I ended up with.
But it was so picky!  So I thought I could make the top half and using split rings go from one motif to the other.  But that didn't work so I made fake rings with chains.  What do you think?

Can you guess which is which?  Maybe not above but in this close-up below it's easy.  Was it worth not having to weave in all those ends?
motif #25!!
I made earrings to match.
And this necklace which isn't my own idea but again Decoromana's - don't worry, I'm not selling it, it's just for me.  : )
Wish that were my pretty neck- it's my daughter!
Here's the "set".

I'm wearing them all tomorrow for December 1st!

Latin for today:  ningat, ningat, ningat = Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!


  1. Beautiful jewelry set, and wonderful photos! Great idea to use the 'fake' rings! Be prepared for lots of favorable comments!

    I can't imagine how you're finding the time to do all this!

  2. We had snow too. Your bracelets both look good. Go with the easy technique. The more you do it, the better it will look.

  3. Snow to the north. Snow to the south. Are we missing it because I haven't tatted any snowflakes?

    Your set is lovely! I can't see the difference between the two, so I'd go with the easier technique.

    Let it snow!

  4. Your tatting is lovely. I only noticed that one bracelet was larger than the other, and both look great to me.

    I keep missing the tatting chats! This time it is flu... One of these days...
    Fox : )

  5. Magnifique! super joli!
    very nice tatting

  6. Lovely! Very pretty set!!! :-)

  7. Very nice set! Gosh - here I am trying to follow patterns, and you are adjusting them :) I have a long way to go with my tatting . . .

  8. I love your snowflakes Michelle - and I think the bracelet has worked out great. As it's the first of December today, I feel like tatting some snowflakes earrings for myself too!


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
