Variations on the Simple Celtic Earring Pattern

The simple Celtic earring pattern I posted yesterday is very easy to vary and enhance.  Here are a couple of examples I tatted up this morning:

This is a design that I have altered and expanded to be used as a foundation for pendants, brooches, bracelets, fascinators, hair ornaments, shoe clips, etc.  It is particularly wonderful as a foundation for the Czech art buttons I favor as it allows the button shank to be centered and anchored, giving support to the button and a framework for additional tatting.
The key is to have fun and experiment- find what works for you and the way you tat.

Hope you enjoy the pattern posted yesterday and have fun playing with beads, picots, and other goodies to make it unique to your taste.
I'm off to run a number of errands, so until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
