Motif #8 - Bead Tatted Earrings



Another quick item to tat are these beautiful earrings by Jane Eborall. This is my favorite earring pattern. I like to use Coats and Clark button craft thread, which is like a size 30 thread, but gives the earring a firm shape. There aren't many colors to choose from, but your beads can give you the color. The thread comes in white, black, cream, tan, natural, green, blue, red, maroon and blue. At least that is all I can recall right now. You can find this thread at JoAnn Fabrics with sewing threads.

Those are great - I use that pattern lots too. I've also added a very long beaded picot to the base and a ring above too. If I've got the notes on that I'll send them later today!!!

Carol, these are simple to tat but what a lovely creation they make! I have been thinking about doing some earrings to add to my bridal collection. I'm going to contact Jane right now for help and advice. Thank you for bringing this lovely design to our attention.

Carol, I just realized how darling all your backgrounds are which you display your tatting on. Do you print up a titled background before you take a photo? That is so creative! The motif on the is pretty. Isn't it amazing how even the simplist motif to tat still looks so pretty?

Thanks Jane, LadyShuttleMaker, and TattingChic! I use American Greetings Creata Card. It is a program to make cards, stationary, envelopes, and lables. I like to print out a complimentary clipart and use this as a background.
