I have tatted my first pair of earrings.   I used Marilee Rockley's pattern, called Filigree Earrings.  This pattern and oodles of tatting information can be found on her blog, Yarnplayer's Tatting Blog.

I noticed she has a couple pair for sale in her etsy store - Yarnplayer.   For my earrings, I used Delica beads, from GF Beth, and Lizbeth Col. 117 - Size 20 fiber.    Should I ever attempt this again 
(and for me, was a challenge to keep everything even - and with a 'pair', keeping them alike) 
I probably would use  a variation of this pattern with jewelry findings in my stash.

Love the look of these earrings and have also found the need, especially when using varigated thread, to keep them as near as possible a like, but it is diffucult. And yes make another pair.

Tatting, doodads and beads all were meant for each other. You did a beautiful job enhancing this doodad shape with your own design using Marilee's pattern as inspiration! And you matched the two earrings perfectly!

I also admire your previous motifs in green thread. It's interesting how many attractive combinations can be made with clovers. Your picots are so even!

Difficult, indeed, to keep two the same! I keep seeing all the beautiful earrings, but am a little hesitant for that reason. You did a beautiful job - they look great!
