There are many stay-at-home moms out there who are creating their own crafts. Undeniably, many of those crafts are cool. But there is something totally unique about the needle tatting work being done by at-home artist Pamela Quevado from Merced, California. The crafts that she creates have a really sophisticated dark edge that is eye-catching and alluring. She writes about her crafts in a fun blog called Needle Tatting and Other Nonsense: The Musings of a Tattooed Needle Tatter.
For those who aren’t familiar with needle tatting, it’s a variation on general tatting. Tatting is a form of lacemaking. What is really cool about the works of art that Quevado creates is that they definitely have the feminine delicacy of lace but they also have a much edgier appeal. The modern woman who doesn’t easily fit into the traditional box of a stay-at-home mom can easily find these works of art seductive.
Take a look at some pieces from her Etsy store:
1. In Bloom Ankle Corsets. These sexy ankle corsets have the look of a lace shoe. There is definitely something mysteriously sexy about them! Quevado can custom make these for her customers in a variety of different colors but there is a definite power to the decision to use black here.
2. A Kind of Pale Jewel – Tatted Lace Mask. A mask is definitely something that has a sensual appeal to it. That’s why masquerade balls are so fascinating! This is a great example of a darkly feminine mask that would definitely enhance the costume closet of any woman today.
3. Flower Garland Tatted Lace Earrings. If you are the kind of woman who finds this style appealing but can’t see yourself wearing ankle corsets or face masks then maybe you’d prefer something simple like these earrings. They are feminine with dramatic flair and definitely make a statement!
Quevado’s blog profile description says that her other interests include knitting, art, steampunk and tattoos. This is definitely a creative woman with a lot going for her in terms of inspiration for her designs. Ladies who are concerned that they can no longer be productive because they’re stuck at home with young children can definitely take a cue from this cool chick in seeing that it doesn’t have to be that way at all!
