These start out with beads dangling below a lock stitch, followed by a split ring.
Then I have my own goofy little way I add a large bead surrounded by a ring. The bead seems to float above the ring on one side and below the ring on the other.
The large circle surrounding the main bead is made of zigzag tatting, otherwise known as set stitches or rickrack tatting.
Another split ring and then the final ring joined to a finding.
This earring has a nice 3-D effect. I am still working out the details for this, and hoping to make the pattern available in the future.
