Ok, one pattern ready to test

Looking for a volunteer to test tat my "Vision" earrings pattern. This is the one that I was working on here, but I have managed to improve it by eliminating the join on the back half of a split ring - hurray!

This design is intended for size 20 or 30 crochet cotton, and involves split rings, size 10 or size 11 seed beads, one round 4 mm bead, and Victorian sets (zigzag tatting). The pattern is a Word document, and I have written directions plus a diagram. This design's a bit tricky, but small.

I would love to test it for you! Unfortunately, I'm not up to tatting with less than size #3 thread right now, and I haven't learned how to make a split ring yet.

I hope you find someone willing to help out soon!

Ok! I've been getting emails from eager volunteers - thanks! There will be more patterns coming, but I have to squeeze time for preparing them in between family commitment, dyeing thread, and cello practicing, etc.
Diane, you will be in top form and doing split rings before I am finished :-)
Encouragement and interest from my loyal supporters is what keeps me going on this book project! Thank you all!!!

Thank you so much! I have 3 tatters already testing this one, so wickedtats, you will have an opportunity to try the next design that I get ready. I just don't want to burn out all my volunteers right away :-) Next pattern may or may not be a while...I'll try and get another one done soon!
