Went to Joann’s today and spent entirely too much money that I don’t have and got lots of crochet thread, some beads and a few other materials, and began experimenting with making crochet earrings. So far, this is what I have to show for it – try not to laugh too hard:
I got hooks on the pentagram earrings, yes. The ecru colored earrings are the very first ones I made, and the round ones I just completely winged. No pattern. Just started doing stitches and that’s what came out. I think they kinda look nice. Kind of a hippie chick feel to them.
I’m going to keep trying and see if I get better. I REALLY LIKE the idea of doing earrings and other forms of jewelry, as opposed to clothing. You don’t have to worry too much about sizes and gauges with earrings. And it’s one size fits all, basically. I may specialize in this, and not worry too much about doing scarves and hats and all that. If I focus in this way, I can eventually get really good and produce excellent earrings.
It’s a thought.
