Just in time for spring festivities, the Spring Garden Pattern and Tutorial is here to help you to create original gifts and decorations for all special celebrations that come with the season – from Easter to Mother’s day, from spring weddings to showers for spring babies, from birthdays of the lucky spring-born to spontaneous merrymaking of green-thumbed people… Because all the flowers areblooming and all the birds are singing to remind us that we are taking part in a miracle of life.
The Spring Garden lace can be finished as an egg holder or napkin ring, used as a greeting card insert, framed as a picture, or shaped as fanciful free standing 3-D decoration.
Cheerful grass greens with colourful beads brighten spaces and minds, especially after long winter. It is a wonderful gift that does not take too much time to make, and it is sure to surprise and impress the lucky recipient.
The pattern is easy to learn, and is therefore suitable for lacemakers of all skill levels. The tutorial is very thorough and detailed, with almost forty photos to illustrate the techniques from start to finish. If you bought any of the previous New School of Lace Patterns and Tutorials for Wire Lace, you know that you can expect quality instruction and original ideas. And you can combine the new design with other spring themes – Flower Earrings, Seedlings and Chicken Egg Stand… All available exclusively from my Wire Lace Supplies shop on Etsy.
There is always more room to learn and grow and expand your lace skills.
Pattern #12: SNOWFLAKE is an ornament for winter festivities. It can be used as a decoration on a Christmas tree or windows, added to season’s greeting cards, or made as a gift for someone special. When fitted with a bail or attached to a bangle frame, the Snowflake can be worn as a pendant, especially when made in fine silver wire.
This pattern looks great when made in Non-Tarnish Silver (0.2mm) or Ivory colour. But it can be done in many other colours: in gold it will look like a star, in red, purple or yellow, it will blossom as a flower. Imagination in wire lace has no boundaries!
Two new patterns are published, just in time for spring celebrations!
The Snail Pattern & Tutorial (B#004) explores, thoroughly and carefully, Cloth stitch and Whole stitch in wire lace.
The Chicken Egg Stand (PT#11) is popular not only for spring celebrations, but the egg holder can be used as decoration all year around. It is one of those charming little gifts that bring about big smiles. First pattern in new Animal Series.
