Coconut Island Quadrille Earrings

Here is Marilee Rockley's Quadrille Earring design in my Coconut Island HDT.  Until yesterday, I had forgotten to list the size 40 of Coconut Island, but that has been resolved now! :o)

These earrings are my first pair of tatted earrings!  I am so excited!  (I finally changed out my earrings the other day from my new piercing!)  I do believe I am going to have fun with this!

Instead of adding a split ring or jump ring, I have added a very tiny (3mm) rubber O ring, it's of a cream color to the top ring.  I mostly decided to do this because I had bought these not realizing how incredibly tiny they were, but this seems like a perfect place to use them. 
You can find some: HERE

Here is how I intend to wear them:

This way I can add them to add post earrings, and could even let someone borrow them without the sharing of the actual post.

The other beads are 15/0 off white beads, two Blue Zircon Swarovski Crystals, and the drop... can be found here (But if you would like a few of the beads, just let me know I'll add them to any thread purchase! I have quite a few left over and I don't mind sharing!!)


  1. Totally clever and tropical looking!

  2. Very, very pretty! I like how you were able to put it onposts that way!

  3. Beautiful earrings and that way of attaching them to your ear is extremely clever!

  4. How ingenious with the O-ring. Very pretty. I am sure this is not your last pair of earrings.

  5. Nice earrings!! :)
    Great idea to be able to use them with other earrings!! :)

  6. Lovely earring, great colours, That's a nice idea to add to a post rather than a loop.
    Happy Easter to you and Livi

  7. Nice earrings! What a cool idea to use the rubber rings. I will have to try them.
    Happy Easter!

  8. Nice pairing of thread colorway and beads. They make a nice set. Good idea for being able to swap out various colors and styles using the same posts
