The Other Thing I Do

July 24th, 2017

Tatted lace necklaceI haven’t mentioned this in a while, but in addition to wedding and event planning (and a few other things), I also make hand-made lace.  The kind I make (there are many, many kinds!) is called tatting.  I’ve been doing it for years, and it’s a fun thing to do with my hands.

Tatting is a kind of lace that is made from hundreds and hundreds of tiny knots pulled into loops and chains.  It takes hours to make a small doily or edging.  But it cannot be replicated by machines.  It requires the human hand to bring it into being.

I have a few pieces that I use as examples, but what I really like is creating custom pieces.  If you see something here that sparks an idea for something you would like to have–for a wedding or for anything–let me know.  I’d be happy to make something that would be a family heirloom.

Prices for custom pieces depend on the size and complexity of the work.  Feel free to get in touch if you have questions.
