Yesterday's post on tatted jewelry tutorials garnered a number of comments. Two people reminded me about TotusMel, an amazing inspirational tatting artisan. Thanks Emi (For the Love of Beads) and Mikki (The Beaded Carpet)!(Update : I've just added her Queen's Feet free tutorial in yesterday's post)
California based Pamela Quevedo is the successful designer behind TotusMel Tats on Etsy. When you peek in her shop, you can see why. She is not only very good but highly creative, churning out original mask designs as well as some of the prettiest and sometimes sexiest jewelry I ever seen. If you weren't sure about tatting as a jewelry technique, her work will convince you otherwise.
I had the hardest time choosing a few designs from her work! So check out her store for loads more. Although the designs shown here are black, she does work in different colors especially for custom orders. Pamela does needle tatting i.e. she doesn't use a shuttle. Pamela also writes a blog.
This is one of her slave bracelet-cum- ring designs. It reminds me of Indian jewelry styles.
This design is called Metal and Lace and was created as an Etsy challenge.
My absolute favorites have to be her anklets which she calls ankle corsets. So if you have a foot fetish, you now know where to go!
