I made these earrings using the technique of shuttle tatting. I used a small plastic "Clover" brand shuttle, but any tatting shuttle could be used. The thread quality is more important than the tool in tatting. I used is "Lizbeth" brand size 10. Lizbeth is a very firm, smooth thread with a cable twist 6 cord construction, which makes it perfect for tatting - nice, crisp, results.

Thanks for responding. I was debating on whether to take the class or not but didn't know anything about it. I loved the earrings and wanted something to make for Christmas gifts. Thanks!
