Motif #9 - Bead Tatted Earrings

I just finished another pair of earrings using Coats & Clark Button Craft thread. The pattern is Jane Eborall's, with a little variations that she has added. The colors I used give the earring a southwest look with the peach, turquoise, cream and brown.

I was at JoAnn Fabrics this past weekend. I wanted to get more of the Coats & Clark Button Craft thread, and I noticed they don't have as many colors anymore. They didn't have the peach thread that I like or the Copenhagen blue. I'll have to go to the Coats & Clark site to see if these colors were discontinued. I sure hope not, I really like using this thread for tatted jewelry.

Those delica beads just make that earwig. VERY pretty colours and that thread is the best for making earrings - I SO agree.

They do have a southwest look about them. The colors do look good. Again, I like what you printed to display them.

Carol, Your earrings are just lovely, and cute butterflies. How clever to use button craft thread.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I love to make this earring and you are right Jane about the delica beads. I have some more color combinations I want to try out soon!
