I tatted this last night while watching the pressure canner as it canned the stew meat from the 2 deer. got 5 qrts.
Looking for some feedback on a set of earrings.
|point to point this is 1"|
The thread is antique Clark's big ball Size 50 and the beads are Mill Hill Antique glass in a pearl finish. The bead in the center is a bicone.
The pattern is Elizabeth Zipay's Tiny Tatted Snowflakes that I bought in her Etsy shop.
The thread is a 3 cord, and I think it is too flimsy. Also for a size 50 it seems to tat closer to a size 70-80, which I am going to try next as it might be crisper and hold it's shape better. Obviously my technique leaves a bit to be desired, the rings and chains are not as close together as they should be.
what do you think? leave out the center clear glass bicone? (I don't have any bigger pearls in the off white color.) Use picots and less beads on the points?
thanks for any ideas you can give me.
