The thread that I used to shuttle tat these earrings is a 6 cord cotton in a very intense hot pink. The beads were worked in as the earrings were made.
This is my original pattern, entitled "Giddy", which appears in my "Tatted Jewelry" book which was published by Annie's Attic:
Very lightweight and comfortable with hypoallergenic niobium earwires. Made in a pet-free and smoke-free home.
