This month's Umi and Tsuru blog giveaway is a pair of earrings made with tatting and orang asli beads. The beads were made by the Lun Bawang, an indigenous people of Sarawak, East Malaysia. Just leave a comment here before 30 September 2010 for a chance to win this. I will use the random number generator to pick the winner.
A mustard orang asli clay bead (10mm) with bronze-toned bead caps. Above it is a lace tatted in mint green Flora 20 cotton thread (#239) with opaque yellow Delica beads from Japan. Ear hooks and findings are bronze-toned. Length approx. 5.0cm / 2.0inch including ear hook.
How do you like the backdrop. It is a tea cup saucer (without the cup) which I picked up at a store in Mornington Peninsular years ago. It would have been so pretty if it came with the cup but I love the saucer too.
