Hoops and String

Well, not string exactly, but cotton embroidery thread ... or metallic yarn ... or blending filaments ... or ?  Over the last few weeks, I've been designing and creating new earrings that utilize metal hoops of various sizes for their bases.  I then crochet around the edge of the hoops, progressing to the inside of the hoop to create a particular motif or pattern.  Experimenting has been a lot of fun.  These are some of my newest ... each unique:
Crocheted Beaded Pink Green Floral Hoop Earrings

My Lucky Stars Crocheted Silver and Blue Hoop Earrings

Crocheted Beaded Purple Lavender Floral Hoop Earrings

Swirling Sunset Flowers Crocheted Hoop Earrings

Crocheted Silvery Gray Star Hoop Earrings

Crocheted Beaded Terracotta Heptagon Motif Hoop Earrings

Crocheted Beaded Spring Green Leaf Motif Earrings

Crocheted Beaded Pastel Hoop Earrings with Aqua Beads

These are wonderful warm weather earrings.  They are extremely lightweight and have an open, airy look and feel.  Many of them also pick up the seasonal colors of spring and summer.
