The earrings on the left are Yarnplayer's Roundabout earrings. I made a slight change so that I could tat them in one pass. The ones on the right are Jane Eborall's Winsome Drop earrings. I made them from the bottom up, rather than top down as the pattern says. This is my second go at them. I used silver beads to go with the clear 'drop' bead, but they were too big and the effect was too 'clunky'.
I see that many tatters scan their work. I tried it this morning with these, but it didn't seem to work as well as my camera. Is that because of the beads? Why do people scan instead of photographing? I must say I'm impressed with my Fujifilm camera, which doesn't seem fazed by shaking hands!
