Oh yes I did...

Yes those are crystals.
And yes. They are GLUED

.
(GASP!)

I know that in some circles my actions may be seen as sacrelidge to lace, and I dare not bring such an item to the lace guild meeting....

.
But when one is given a hot-fix tool, one must use it! So I hot fixed some bling on a tatted medallion for a pendant.

May the lace gods forgive me and look favorably upon my work.

Almost looks like an oreo cookie with the icing showing through a little. Hope this does not upset you - must be hungry when I first saw it. Thanks for your inspiration - Robert Kent, in northern Iowa.

I say if it looks pretty, it's allowed. That is very pretty, and I'm sure it's even better in person.

Oh, my, Robert is right. I LOVE Oreo Cookies! That is gorgeous. Does it have a name yet?

Krystle said...

Hahahaaaaa....I am NOT calling it the oreo pendant, thank you very much! Lol!

The thread is black, I think it appears brown in the picture but now that the suggestion has been made I think of cookies every time I look at it!

Hello Krystle,

In Malaysia, we put hot-fix, iron-on bling on just about everything: sleeves, necklines, scarves. So I'd say you are not being sacrilegious, just exotic :)

GLUED? Naughty, naughty girl but WHAT a good idea to see how it looks!!! Now do I need a glue gun? Yup, one day!!!! I guess the 'bling' can be added as you go if you want to? Not a lot of point if it's not going to be worn, though.

I like it very much:)

It looks fabulous and very modern! :)

Krystle said...

Ha! I knew Jane would have something to say!

I added all of the jewels at the end. The hot tool melts the glue on the jewels, and from what I understand they are permanent with hand washing recomended if they are used on garments. I figure Jewelry won't take the abuse of washing....I think they would make lovely centers for flowers on hairclips.

Great idea! We add beads why no jewels?
