Diane(Lace-Lovin' Librarian) dared us to tat around these, little doodads (which she supplied, mine was about 5/8"). You could use someone else's pattern or design your own pattern.
My pattern, started out to be a motif for another shirt. I had three rows designed and started tatting. By the time I finished the second row, I liked it so much, I wanted to leave it for a pair of earrings. The finished earrings are 1 3/4", plus the ear wire (not shown, the ear wire goes on the top picot. I use changeable ear wires so I can use one pair of ear wires for all of my tatted earrings.). The earrings were tatted with Lizbeth, size 20, in Vineyard Harvest.
