After seeing so many ice-drops on tatting blogs I did not quite understand how they were made until I saw that Bernice had a link to Diane's pattern and so decided to have a quick go and make one myself. There were also some handy suggestions about useful items to tat around. This is my first and only ice-drop, so far! I might do more, who knows?
Over 10 years ago I bought these vintage chandelier glass drops and was at the time attracted by their colour and shape, but have never really put them to good use. I suppose I could have used a more interesting thread to tat around them but did not want to distract from the beauty of the glass.
So now, at last, I have a wearable item from this vintage glass after learning how to make an ice-drop, thank you Diane for starting this craze.
