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.

I am currently using this brown one to tat.
These two (pink and white) are still brand new. Anyone wants to do a blinged shuttle exchange? I will exchange with the first two people to comment on this blog post. First person gets to choose which shuttle they prefer. In return, you can send me any shuttle (blinged/personalized).

I tatted the centre motif a few months back and blogged about it here. It was put on my to do list to tat more motifs. I really like this colourway which is Lizbeth Western Sunset (Size 20, #102). It looks like a totally different pattern when 7 motifs are joined up.

Fox sent me some beads together with the threads exchanged and I used them here for the pink and green dragonflies. Thank you, Fox. If you are wondering about the pink dragonfly wing, I twisted it before tying the ends.
This one is sparkly using the Altin Basak white with silver strand.
This one is also with a twisted wing. Tatted with beads from Fox. You can pretty much shape the dragonfly as you pin it down before blocking. Hope you had some fun tatting it.
