I'm one of those people who doesn't look her best in long, dangling earrings, but I like to wear my tatting. Back in the 1990s I made earring jackets for myself and my friends--little pieces of tatted lace that you can wear with your favorite post earrings. You just place the post through the designated part of the lace and then put them into place. The lace is so thin that it doesn't affect the fit of your earrings. This is a recent design and very simple if you can make dimpled rings. I think it looks best with small earrings so more of the heart shapes can be seen. My mother, my oldest daughter, and my great niece love them. They've requested several pairs in their favorite colors.
