Twilight Zone Earrings

A tatting friend kindly sent me a sample of Yarnplayer's "Twilight Zone".  I had seen a doily she had tatted with it and when I mentioned how pretty the colours were and that this shade had sold out - she sent me some to try! - aren't tatting people great?!  I knew I wanted to make something "for me" with that thread.

So here is what I made.

A pretty pair of earrings which I am wearing right now.
I added a black freshwater pearl to the centre.

The pattern is just a classic repeated 6 rings and chains and has another layer added in the centre to make them more three-dimensional.

I'm having a "Yarnplayer day" as just this morning I received her latest book, Tatted Jewelry, in the post (was delighted to find it in Amazon.uk).  There is a pair of earrings in there that is shouting really loudly and I think I'll have to go make them... NOW!

Best wishes,


  1. Sounds like a good day to me! The earrings are indeed classic - and very pretty in that wonderful thread.

  2. Gorgeous pair of earrings! I love the colours.

  3. I am so envious of people who can wear earrings! I'm sure those look lovely on you. The black pearls are the perfect accent!

  4. They are beautiful and I just love the color..!
