This is one of my first attempts at making crocheted jewelry. I purchased a kit from Mary Maxim, 2 separate one actually, to start learning how to make these pretty earrings. I have not added beads to this pair because I am working so very hard at getting the crochet pattern down. I am rather proud of them and I have worn them already. I want to keep making this style and wearing them. Now for the other style that I have made.
I am very proud of these too. I even added the beads as the instructions indicated. I did change the pattern a bit because I am liking these better but I did follow the instructions most of the time. At least I thought so. Obviously I do need more practice to get the crochet ‘stitches’ just right. Do you see the other problem? Here have a closer look.
Do you see it? Both of the earrings face the same way. One is not opposite of the other. Therefore when I wear them, because I do, I always have one earring that is backwards. I followed the instructions on that part but I still came out backwards. That is about right for me – follow the instructions and come out backwards. I will definitely practice some more on this pattern. I did get complimented on these from a lovely woman when I wore them into town a few days ago. I didn’t show her how backwards on of them was I just made sure to keep the good one facing in her direction. At least I do hope that I did.
