Ecru earrings

Ecru?!!!
Yes, sometimes the yarnplayer can tat with ecru :-)
These are very simple! Just load up some beads onto your ball thread. Tat a mock ring (it's just a chain leaving a big loop at the beginning) halfway around a larger bead, with bead picots. Slip the bead onto the loop, put the shuttle through, and snug up the thread, not too tight. Then tat the rest of the way around the larger bead. Lock join into the beginning. Then put some of the ball thread onto a 2nd shuttle to tat the split rings.

You make it sound so simple! The earrings are very pretty, but I do prefer your HDT!

Very nice.

Thanks! I've used HDT in the next pair.

Ya know what? I think that the ecru thread would look gorgeous in the pattern you used in the next post "green and blue earrings" with little pearls and a medium or large pearl...yeah...I can see it now...elegante.

That is a great idea, tattingchic.
I just may try it!
