A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
It's been a year since I last crocheted some earrings. But while I was hopelessly lining up for voter's registration, inspiration came.
I immediately sketched simple designs on my notebook. This is one of those designs. Its funny I didn't think of this one before given its simplicity.
Though simple in construction, this pair is a classic.

Note on Assembly and Finishing
It's more prudent to harden the motif first before attaching it to fish hooks. That way, the motif can maintain its circular shape.
It tends to elongate if attached to fish hooks before hardening it. The weight of the glue stretches it.
Yet in the end, its your decision whether you want an elongated motif.
