Monday Makings… Crochet Jewelry!!

Have you ever crocheted jewelery??  I have made several crochet jewelery pieces during my crochet journey!!  Recently I have been noticing  hoop earrings with miniature doilies crocheted on to them (well doilies may not be the right wording, but that is what I thought they looked like..lol)  …  I love to do thread crochet, but hadn’t tried this cute technique yet… So this weekend when I was giving my design brain a break from trying to figure out an edging for my upcoming afghan pattern… I decided to whip up a few pairs of earrings…

Simple Summertime Earrings…

I made the pattern up as I crocheted… and I think I like the way they turned out!!  What do you think??   Would you like me to publish this as a Free Crochet Pattern??  These are easy to make and very inexpensive too!!  They just take a little patience!!

Happy Crocheting!
