These tatted earrings are completed in 2 rounds using one shuttle and a ball thread. The beads dangling from the bottom are strung onto the thread before starting to tat. The earring is started with a mock ring, (like tatting a chain) and the large central bead is placed over the starting loop. The other beads are placed over long picots and held temporarily in place with paper clips until they are joined. Steaming the finished tatting brings it all into perfect shape. The pattern is found in the eBook "Boutique Tatting".
