Heart Earrings, Delicate Hand Tatted Lace, with Crystal Beadwork

Image Description
These lovely, Victorian Style lacy heart earrings are perfect for Valentines Day, Mothers Day or anytime you want to make a "loving" statement. My needle tatted Antique Mauve Earrings are delicate looking but sturdy, certainly unique and would make a great gift for that special someone in your life. 100% cotton tatting thread is lightly stiffened to give the earrings body, and although they are a significant size, this pair is very light weight. A clear, crystal glass teardrop dangle adds just the right touch of sparkle, along with 10 clear glass seed beads that catch the light. The pair pictured are in stock and are made with silver hypo-allergenic nickel-free plating, but you may request any metal you prefer. Sterling silver or other metals may be a little more in price. Tatting is a knotted lace technique made up of thousands of tiny knots which are tied to form rings, chains and spaces (called pecots). For these earrings the beads are added onto the thread ahead of time and placed in a pecot as the tatting is done. The pecots are what really make tatting look lacy. This pair of earrings, as with all my tatting that will receive regular handling, is lightly stiffened to help them keep their lovely shape. Please do allow added time for finishing any special requests and feel free to contact me with any questions.
