Another earring design

Well that's what it started out as but it ended up being far too big so it's now become a pendant!!!

The necklace part is one of a whole LOT that my dear friend Joanie gave me when I was staying with her in America last September. I've used quite a few as I do tend to wear pendants.

Can you see that with this doodad I've actually joined to the centre by taking the thread up and down underneath the outer holes. Took a bit of fiddling but after the first one it was easy!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it too!!!!

I've only got notes for this design as I'm not sure if anybody would want it. I'm definitely going to make more for myself though!!!!

Really effective, it looks as though the doodad is floating on top of the tatting. I see some very large earrings around, so you could make two!

Very nice! I've been thinking of pulling out my doodads for tatting. I'm just too lazy to get out of my chair!

I really like it myself. I would tat one (or two)

This concept of tatting around something fascinates me. Your ideas work much better than what I think up!

Everyone wants an "Eborall Creation"!
Looks great.

I really didn’t think anybody would want this pattern. It’s really quite easy and one thing I’ve found about it is that it holds it’s shape really well. I’ve worn it a couple of times and it’s stayed flat without any stiffening. It could well become a favourite pattern of mine for me!!!! I’ll get round to writing and drawing it up as soon as I’ve finished my current project!!!
