Colour combinations

I have hold on my new creations for a moment and I'm making some items for an exhibition in South Italy, where I hope to sell a bit, to get back some of the money, which I have to spend for the exhibitions.
The crosses are made with a wire inside to hold them in the right shape, though I did not reach Elizabeth's perfection. I would so much know her secret. I will teach the technique to insert the wire, when I will be in Berkeley in February.
The Spring earrings are fast to make and stiff enaugh. I'm trying out different color combinations.
The Easy earrings are also very fast to make. The rose ones are in silk thread I got as gift from the japanese ladies, when I taught tatting in Japan. You can find the earrings in my book "Just for Fun". If you have tried out the Spring earrings, you will be able to know how I made the crosses.

The crosses and earrings are gorgeous, Iris. I really enjoyed your video of tatting over wire. I tatted a small butterfly using your instructions. I will be tatting over wire again. Thank you for sharing.
