ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the works of artist Sandy Forrington. Tatting which is regarded as a sailor's art, was the kind of work engaged by Sandy during a present-day voyage with her merchant husband. Before turning to tatting, Sandy worked with stained glass, glass beadwork and seed bead earrings. She made a connection between tatting patterns and the seed beads which led her to develop the picot lace. Picot lace is a technique that transposes tatting patterns into beadwork which is similar in appearance to the rings, loops and chains.
