Bring a dash of color and glamour to your look with beaded tatting lace earrings. Popular in the European courts of the 18th century, tatting is an interlacing of rings and chains formed by knots, using fingers and a shuttle. This series of knots creates patterns which can be extremely intricate. Subtly floral shaping in the design is highlighted by vibrant red beading, creating a lush and alluring effect.

Earrings are made from polyester and silk threads with glass beads. They measure 1 ½ inches long and 3/5 inches wide.

Lorina Balteanu innovated the technique of tatting, incorporating glass pearls and semi precious stones into her designs, giving the lace a new sense of luxury. Each piece is entirely hand-crafted by lacemakers in her workshop in France.
