An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I visualised the earrings with a beaded ring at the top with the hook off it, but I struggled to get the ring to hang symmetrically. I decided to make a miniature version at the top, which works ok. But then I realised that I could just hang the hook off one ring to make really simple earrings. Could be a good pattern to show off pretty beads.
Wind 80 cm onto the shuttle and add 4 beads and a hook.
R1: Put 1 bead and the hook on the back of the hand. 2 vsp, 6, add hook to picot, 6, vsp, 2. Close. The bead will be caught at the base of the ring.
R2: 1 bead at back of hand. 2 + (vsp) 6-6vsp,2, Close.
R3: The same.
R4: 1 bead at back of hand. 2+(vsp)6-6+(vsp on R1)2. Close.
Hide ends. (I tatted over the beginning thread in the first ring and sewed the other end under the caps)
Make another one!
