In Honor of Mary Konior

Mary Konior passed away last week, leaving a hole in the tatting world. Her books were an inspiration to those of us lucky enough to own them. Imagine how lucky are those who knew her personally!

In honor of Mary Konior, I am posting these earrings I made for my mother years ago. The pattern is Mary's rose doodle from "Tatting with Visual Patterns." I've got other earrings made from other doodles, but these mean the most to me.

I love what you have done with Mary Konior's Rose Doodle to create enchanting and romantic earrings! It would never have occurred to me to add beads the way you did.

Truly, truly lovely jewelry! Thanks for sharing.

ooo lovely earrings. the hooks look intriguing to me though. What are they? they look like rubber!

Thanks, everyone. These were always my favorites of the earrings I made for mom. Wickedtats, the hooks are made of nylon. They hold their shape, but if pulled on pop out instead of tear through the ear lobe.
