Finally Some Earrings for Myself

Here is one of the pairs of earrings I had tatted for myself. The thread is Size 30 hand dyed cordonnet thread from Marilee Rockley, aka Yarnplayer. It is the most wonderful thread to tat with. It is called Rhubarb Pie. The beads are pink Size 11. The pattern is by Elizabeth Zipay who tats beautiful jewelry.

Never Enough Earrings

Hi there! I hope everybody had a great Independence Day! It was so nice to be off for three days in a row. I needed to rest and tat. A friend of mine asked me for color specific earrings and here they are. The pattern for the yellow pair is from the split ring bookmark that Jane Eborall's friend sent to her. One of the 25 motif challenge participants, Krystle Dawn, made earrings from it and I just love the way they turned out. So I had to have a go at them. The blue ones are the same pattern by Marilee as the ones in a previous post. I used Flora Size 20 thread for both pairs. They are my motifs # 11 and 12.
