Lace Jewelry and Ornaments

Tatting is a form of knotted lace which is quite different from both crocheting and knitting. It is delicate and yet sturdy because of the nature of the knots. Each piece is lovingly hand made by me right here in the U.S. with the finest materials available. Cotton is my preferred thread since it holds the knots well and is available in a kaleidoscope of colors.

Follow me on Facebook (Tatting by Wendy - lace jewelry) to see what the inspiration is behind each new collection. For example, a few years ago my family adopted a tortoiseshell cat and her colors inspired the Bastet collection. Join in the conversation. Suggest a new design or color combination. Maybe even win a contest! If Instagram is your thing, I'm there as Wendy_the_Lacemaker. Both Facebook and Instagram are about a lot more than just lace.

I started selling my lace on eBay to balance my cross stitch pattern habit. Well, many years later, here I am, tatting away like mad and loving every moment of it. I'm constantly tweaking my favorite designs and creating new ones. Plus, as I acquire new threads and beads, the possibilities are endless.

I'm thrilled that my craft is allowing me to be an at home mother and mentor to my daughter and other kids in my neighborhood. Combining science, math and high quality craft is truly a blessing.

    Tatting is my passion. Not a day goes by without a shuttle in my hand. However, my house is home to lots of other crafts so you may see polymer clay, crocheting, knitting, spinning, needlepoint, and other media pop in to this store for a visit.

I learned to tat while in high school and have kept at it since then. My family teases me that I tat in my sleep! In 2004 I started making the colorful jewelry you see here. I love to incorporate a variety of beads as accents to the lace. I am happy to change the earring hooks to suit your style better - including to clip ons. Please just ask.

Additional policies and FAQs
Your lace jewelry is washable. I recommend gentle handwashing using any non-abrasive soap you would feel comfortable using on your face. I use baby shampoo simply because it is in my house. Then dry the item flat.

If you see something on my website (tattingbywendy.com) that you like but would rather purchase through Etsy, I will be happy to create a special listing just for you.

I prefer to use DMC or Lizbeth brand threads for my tatting although I have started experimenting with hand dyed thread too. While I am using either cebelia style or pearl cotton, the DMC color numbers are the same as for the floss found in many craft stores which can be helpful when placing custom orders.
