Kinetic Tatted Earrings


The Kinetic tatted earrings pattern is done!
I have it for sale as a 4 page PDF file in two locations:
Since Etsy has done some major upgrades to allow instant downloads of patterns, I'm okay with listing my patterns on Etsy again. They're not all there yet, but I'll add them as time allows. Oh, and the price on patterns at Etsy will be slightly more than on Craftsy, to compensate for Etsy's fees.

The pattern is trickier than it looks (sorry, folks!). Each earring is made of 2 separate parts: a main motif (which could be a pretty earring all on its own) and a narrow pendulum for some extra movement, hence the title, "Kinetic". The ring under the bead is a Loop Tatted Ring. I've put some instruction on it in the pattern, but I would suggest supplementing that with the free info available via an Internet search for loop tatted ring how-to.

Also, lucky me, I received a very nice package in the mail from Fox at Tat-ology! Exquisite tatted star and 2 of the larger size Clover shuttles in pretty colors. Thank you, Fox!

Thank you Marilee, this is a gorgeous pattern which I purchased from you and I've had a challenging few days learning how to do a Loop Tatted Ring! It was like winning lotto when I finally did it :)
cheers, Marianne
