An angel for M

One of the ladies from the Wild Rose lace makers Guild gifted me a tin box full of her excess jewellery. Inside the tin were  many  shiny pieces, bangles, bracelets,  beads and chains. She thought they would be useful for me to tat around. 

As a thank you I have made her this angel.  The tiny halo is tatted with a Diamant metallic thread color D301. It is a shiny copper color to match the repurposed bead which has a glint of copper inside. 

I have tatted the body with a vintage Coats size 30.  The body is stiffened with white school glue diluted with water. 

The designer is Orsi from Hungry and at one time she sold her pattern on Etsy but it's still available on her blog here.  She also provides information to make another version of this angel and a head.


  1. Wonderful angel!! :)
    Really great thank you gift!! :)

  2. A lovely thank you. I look forward to seeing what you do with the shiny bits you were given.

    1. That bead for the head was part of a bracelet.

  3. Very pretty. Have fun, tatting around all the jewelry.
