Already claimed-Christmas Ice Drop earrings

Our youngest daughter has been away for a month 
working a seasonal job at the amusement park to 
earn some money since she has had a hard time 
finding a job.  She came home yesterday as I was 
finishing these and loves them, and claimed them. 
They are tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Angel's Love with 
green glass center beads and small green glass beads.
 She loves earrings and has quite an assortment-many 
are pictured here.  And she loves the comments when 
she wears the tatted earrings.
Have a fabulous tatting day!!! :)

Those look so festive! I must try my hand at the idea after the Fair!

Thank you both!! :)
picotsnkeys, let me tell you that I use glass beads from JoAnn's for these because the "gems" used in the regular Ice Drops are too heavy for earrings. They are not clear, but have a beautiful wave inside like marbles do. I have a post which shows the strings of them here: https://hiskid66.blogspot.com/2017/06/in-trouble.html
They are the set to the right of the purple beads. I have to buy 2 strands making sure they have the same colors to make pairs of earrings. I have also used the purple beads and they are lightweight plastic which are clear. ;) I use my own stitch count and size 40 thread(and I have used size 80 on a pair of 2). Let me know if you need the stitch count! :)

Such an affirmation when earrings are immediately claimed! I'm not surprised, they're lovely.
