An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

My daughter sent me these pretty shell discs. I thought I'd use some of them to make her a pair of earrings. She's not a fan of very big, dangley earrings, so I was aiming for something small and dainty. My first attempt is on the left. It's a bit too simple and is badly executed - the end I tatted over is poking out and I can't get rid of it without cutting the ring. The second one might work. The ring around the disc is actually a chain, with beads on the shuttle thread and the ball thread.
