The Beaded Oval Tatted Earrings from Julie Patterson I had to alter it some. I used size 40 Lizbeth thread and it had too many rings for the size of thread to pull through the SCMR. The first ring broke and a second ring the wire for the beads cut it a part. Instead of the wire for the top part, I used the end of the tread from the SCMR. Used a bead needle and thread it through the beads around a jump ring and back down. Tied both threads and hid them on both sides of the tatting. I was very pleased with the outcome of both patterns.
