|Mixed media tatted earrings|
|Work in progress|
Finished today, these are mixed media tatted earrings, my design. They're based on my Nouveau pattern, but I added more beads, embellishments, and a wire framework.
The colors of hand dyed thread used were Gold Dust for the flowers, and Leafy for the greens. The wire frame is 20 gauge purple coated copper wire, and I wrapped the tatting on with 28 gauge wire, also purple. Tiny Swarovski crystals in amethyst color are in the flowers. The color choices seemed odd at the time, but I'm really pleased with the result!
