Timeless Crochet Earrings
For inspiration I looked to the group of designs known as Mayan Crop Circles. And the result is something a little geometric, a little tribal looking, and very modern. Best of all, a pair takes less than 30 minutes to make – truly Timeless Crochet Earrings! (And now we all know we’ll be around to make them, heh.)
You can use this pattern to cover up old worn hoops, or buy a set of new plain hoops at the craft store or dollar store. I purchased a set of Darice brand hoops for less than $3, from the jewelry findings department at JoAnn Fabrics. These particular hoops are also available online in the US and in the UK, if you search for “1999-283 30mm hoops.” But any hoops should work, as long as they are roughly the same size.
