Some people take their plain plastic shuttles and add some bling with paint, fabric, paper, Mod Podge, gems, etc. Threads of a Tatting Goddess showed off some of the ones she created. This trend is catching on as we get braver about decorating the shuttles in our own collections.
I found a listing on eBay recently that I just had to get for myself. They are the cutest miniature shuttles, made from wood, and perfect to use for wearing as jewelry. I have to admit I kind of want to try tatting with them before I turn them into earrings. The shuttles are posed next to some coins so you can get an idea of the size. The doily in the background is one of the first doilies I tatted, about 20 years ago.
