The Beads with Tatting are now...

If you remember, I won some beads with tatting from Umintsuru's January giveaway. And I said I would make tassel earrings with them. So here's the product.

It's the first time I made tassels and just having tassels didn't appeal to me. Good thing I found some white and purple seed beads in my bead box. I'd strung the beads to purple or white threads at irregular intervals and cut the threads at different lengths.

I've enjoyed the creating process. To be honest, I didn't have an idea how the earrings would look and how I was going to make the tassels. Pretty happy with the final thing.

How do you like these?


  1. Hi Val!!! I came over to check on you. Are you okay??? Have you recovered from watching that Jimi Hendrix vid on my blog???

  5. i have no idea, tattingchic! thanks for your concern.

    the fact is: it didn't occur to me that the situation was anything to worry about except i've got to get to the airport as the last flight for the day was leaving in less than an hour! anyway, that's one 'adventure' to add to my work-stories...
