More earrings talk

So, over the years I've tried many, many things and the only earrings I really like are the Winsome Drop ones which I did a year or two ago.

For me, personally, they have everything I need in an earwig!!!  They're lacy enough with the tatting and they hang beautifully with the beads.  Also they give countless opportunities to play with all sorts of beads and I now have them to match most of my 'outfits' (by that I mean umpteen tshirts and scruffy jeans!!!).

Here are two naked (before the wires were added) pairs I made with the shell beads!!

Can you see the tiny hearts with beads in the centre on the blue pair?  Those are the same as the ones I used in the dead bracelet (the ones from Kelly).  So easy to add a bead to the centre.

The orange pair have a small crystal at the bottom.

  1. What a lovely colour blue. Very pretty.

    Do you get many earwigs down there. Can't remember when I last saw one!

    Take care.

  5. Oh, I especially love the blue pair. I like the effect of the different bead (heart) at the bottom. I've been thinking about making myself some tatted earrings, but I don't look very good in long dangly ones. I prefer something that sits close or on the lobe with some dangle below. The only thing I've attempted so far were 'earring jackets' I could put a post earring through. Another idea for my 'to tat' list, I guess.
