I've been in an odd mood lately. That's probably what explains a week of absence here. Other parts of life explode and it takes me awhile to get back on my feet emotionally. We are in for some major change around here..... it's good but will be a difficult transition. Can't say more than that as it's a sensitive situation. But it's been stressing me out. And that puts a wrinkle in my creative flow. I had several failed design attempts this week, so I let myself take it easy and just fiddle with some Romanian point lace. That led to this earring that you see above. It's a combo of tatting and needle lace I guess. I figured out how to do a sort of pearl tatting around the ring to get stitches on the inside and outside of the ring. I hadn't seen that anywhere before so it took a little bit of figuring, I can post a tutorial if anyone else is interested. Really I wanted to do it so I would have something to anchor the needle stitches in the center, and the caps of the double stitches fit that bill perfectly.
Anyway, I need opinions on whether or not we like this earring (or if I should make another one)
I think it perhaps needs a little more embellishment, and as I am now writing this, I think I have an idea that might do quite well.
