Handmade Beaded Jewelry

Sunday, June 1, 2008

Back in January I went to Venice Italy with 3 other women
to take a lacemaking class. If you scroll down you will see the
Lily that we all made. Our teacher Cristina Brunello
gave us each a pattern to take home with us. So that we
can make a small doily. Well, I have finished mine.
Considering that I had to wing some of it. (most of it)I don't think it can
out half bad. I'm rather pleased with it. Even through
I can see my mistakes. But then I'm my own worst
enemy....lol (Aren't we all ) So, now that I finished it,
Can I call it Venetian lace? Or do I say in the style of
venetian lace? Since I make it here in the good old USA.
(Tongue in cheek)hehehe....Anyways, I really enjoyed making it and I look forward to making something of my own design....

  1. Your lace is so cool! You're right Venezian lace sounds much better than, say, Yorktown lace.

    How big is the piece?


  2. Bravisima! Que bella! Me piace molto. Translation: Bravo! It's beautiful! I like it very much. I can't imagine how difficult it is to create something like this is. Wow!

  3. it's beautiful! i took a lacemaking class in Vermont two years ago, so I can appreciate how difficult this is... I haven't touched my project since i left the class room, my bobbins are waiting faithfully for me to open the box, i think...
