Lace
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand. The holes can be formed via removal of threads or cloth from a previously woven fabric, but more often open spaces are created as part of the lace fabric. Lace-making is an ancient craft. True lace was not made until the late 15th and early 16th centuries. A true lace is created when a thread is looped, twisted or braided to other threads independently from a backing fabric.
Originally linen, silk, gold, or silver threads were used. Now lace is often made with cotton thread. Manufactured lace may be made of synthetic fiber. A few modern artists make lace with a fine copper or silver wire instead of thread.

I can't make lace but I wanted to show you some thing I made from lace a while back (if you have been following for some time you may have already seen this, so I apolagise for repeating myself)!


Made from silver metal clay if any one would be intrested I might make this my first tutorial??? It was very easy to make!

Ok so now to ETSY's lacy delights...
