Petal Earrings

I had the chance to buy the kit for these earrings at an incredibly reduced price.  I made one earring a few months ago and hadn't gotten around to making the second one… until today.  I decided I should make it at last, so I could enjoy wearing the earrings instead of looking at the lone one!

These are the Yafa Petal Earrings
designed by Penny Dixon

There was only one colour scheme available when I bought the kit but I have now purchased the petals in my favourite turquoise colour and may just have to make another pair…  They are substantial earrings and I'm wondering if I could modify the pattern a bit to make a similar but slightly smaller earring.  We'll see.

Oh, and I know most people are probably aware by now but just in case I can catch a few more:  

Fox's blog, Tat-ology, has moved to a new address:

I know I was worried when I got the "404 URL not found" error message when I went looking for her blog a couple of days ago so just in case you were wondering too, this is where she can now be found.

Best wishes,


  1. Thank you, Frivole!

    It has been a bit of an Internet roller coaster. However, tatters like you have been so helpful, that things are getting back on track - finally.

    Great earrings!

    Fox : )

  2. Love those earrings! I sure wish I could wear them.

  3. Super cute! I'll bet those jingle-jangle when you wear them.

  4. cute earrings, they look like they might be a bit heavy, unless the petals are very light.

    1. Yes, they are a little heavy, though not uncomfortable. I'm working on a new version which will be smaller and lighter. The original has 18 petals dangling from the bottom, the new version will have only 6 so they will be much lighter whilst keeping the general idea.

  5. sehr schöne Ohrringe, nur ein bischen groß.

    1. Yes, a little large, I agree. Bold I guess.

  6. Lovely earrings, look beautiful in those colours. Are they heavy to wear?

  7. Hi Margaret, yes, a little heavy as I said above but still comfortable to wear. Look out for the new version coming up soon!

  8. Great earrings, cannot wait for the new version and new colour.
