I saw this pair of earrings ages ago, and really, really wanted them... But at $160 dollars, I figured I had better figure something else out! Copying was a bugger... I think the designer needle tats, and I use a shuttle (can't seem to wrap my head around needle tatting for some reason, even though most tatters say it's easier!). My version isn't exactly the same, but I think they came out pretty fair.

I used Lizbeth size 20 tatting thread, and the color was 168 - Latte Foam.

Your version is not exactly the same but it is very similar and in my opinion even better because of the darker colors.

Thanks!

I couldn't find an exact match on the thread or beads... And the slightly darker shade suits me better, anyhow. My younger daughter wants me to make a pair with black thread and iridescent beads.
