What is a Calotte?
I really like the middle one's too. They are so pretty! Wearing your work is such a sense of accomplishment.
We can learn from our dogs: wag more, bark less.
Wow I would love wearing those! They are really pretty!
Thank you! A calotte is a small metal finding that has a ball that opens on one side so you can put your knot in there and then enclose it in it by closing the ball with a pair of pliers. The other side usually has a loop to hang it with.
Here, I found a photo:
On these, the other part needs to be bent to shape slightly to make a loop.
Ah, okay. So it's an extra piece that can go between the finding and the tatting. Thanks for the explanation and picture!
How exciting! I love the earrings you've made! (Especially the "Chilled" ones!)
