Tatted Earrings and Bracelet with Beads

Coverphoto

One can never go wrong with a little extra jewelry. Especially when you can make every detail to your liking.

Below are the instructions to help you make your own pair of tatted earrings, and a bracelet.

EaringsSupplies for one pair of earrings:
Tatting Shuttle (Art. No: 8101)
Amour Steel Crochet Hook No. 12 (Art. No: 1226)
Size 20 Crochet Cotton (We used LizBeth Thread)
5 round beads (8mm), 1 round bead (6mm)
Earring Findings

String the 5 (8mm) beads onto the thread before winding the shuttle.
Wind the shuttle, placing the beads a few turns back to keep beads
out of the way until needed.
R1: 10 ds, p, 5 ds, bp, 5 ds, p, 10 ds, cl r
R2: 10 ds, j, 5 ds, bp, 5 ds, p, 10 ds, cl r
Repeat R2 until you have five rings.
Join the 6mm round bead by inserting the crochet hook through it,
catching the ball thread and pulling it through the bead. Keep pulling
the thread through to get a large enough loop to put the shuttle through.
Complete this join by pulling back on the ball thread until the join is
hidden inside the bead.
Keep a firm hold on the bead, make a lock stitch centered at the top.
Make 3 small rings without beads- 15ds close. Attach earring findings.

    • Based on the photo I would say bp = beaded picot
      You add the 5 beads to the thread before you start tatting. For bp I would just pull one bead close to the last knot and continue knotting the next 5 ds.
