I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-)
I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.
I just LOVE this pattern by Marilee Rockley! This one is done in one of my Hand Dyed Threads (HDT) called Springtime which is a nice bright Spring green along with some yellow and a touch of light blue. The beads are a terrific match for the thread used. Necklace length is 21", including clasp. Earrings are made from a single repeat of the pattern used in the necklace and are 1-1/2" wide by 2" long (not including earring wire) Earrings have been stiffened to hold their shape nicely as they are larger than most of my earrings.

If you like this pattern as much as I do but would like to see it in a different color, just drop me a line and I'd be happy to make one up just for you in your color scheme/s
