Tatting: earrings patternThis design used two 5mm turquoise-colored beads, 20 gold seed beads, tatting thread size 20, and 2 gold-tone jewelry findings.

Wind 1.5 yards of thread onto a shuttle. Add 7 seed beads onto the thread. You will start with a ring. Be sure you leave at least 5 inches of thread hanging so you can tie your work to the jewelry finding when you’re done.

Form the ring on your hand, and at the same time keep 6 beads close to the shuttle, and one bead on your working thread and to the back of your hand.

Cut about 5 inches away from your work. Thread both ends through the 5mm bead, then through a seed bead. Tie with a secure knot to the jewelry finding. Seal the knot with a drop of Fray-Check or fabric glue. When it’s dry, trim the ends off.

Repeat for the second earring.
