Which should instantly remind you of the James Bond Film!
But these diamonds are a little different, obviously not the real thing, just the diamond shape. They are from Jane's pattern which you can find here but as you can see I have added a few beads. I have also used two different shades of thread, but the distinction between the colours does not show. The pearl beads were made in Korea and a year ago this week I purchased them from China Town in Singapore - in fact from The People's Park shopping centre which is where Wendy likes to shop and those who are looking for tatting supplies.
The pearl beads are added to the self closing mock rings and you can find this technique here. I am still working on these diamonds and hope, unless I get distracted or just too busy, to finish the project before the week is out.
We ('Im in the garage) and myself are still working on items for the Art and Craft Exhibition in the village, there is no competition involved just a place for people to exhibit what they have made and also sell them if they want to. It takes place next month but so far we have very little entries on paper, although quite a few people have promised items.
Another exhibit which 'Im in the garage has made is this dog a 'kumiki' or a Japanese interlocking wood puzzle. I have yet to learn how it fits together, too frightened to take it apart to show you at the moment!
This dog has ebony wood as its eyes and is made in mahogany and beech, he now has a mate as we plan to let people play with one whilst the other dog remains intact.
