Simply "Giddy" tatted earrings


 The pattern, "Giddy" earrings, is in the Tatted Jewelry book published by Annie's Attic. All of the patterns in the book were designed by me (yes, that's my name on the cover). The "Giddy" pattern has just one "floating ring" at the top made with 2nd shuttle, beaded picots, and starts with a bead inside a self-closing mock ring. Instructions are in the book.

I'm trying to get more tatted items made for several art/craft shows that are coming up; 2 of them are listed on the postcard at the bottom of this post. I'll be demonstrating tatting at the events, too.

This is one of my favourite patterns from your book and I have made at least half dozen pairs so far. Since visiting the USA and buying so many beads I intend to make even more!

Love the taupe/black/gold. Need to pull out the book and try them. Sounds easy and have not tried a bead inside a self-closing mock ring yet.

Gorgeous earring, love the way the bead floats.

Hope both craft shows are successful
