These earrings are super easy. If you haven't tried "casting onto" anything with crochet, there's a link to a tutorial that shows you how to single crochet onto a hoop earring. These are quick to make and would be a great gift for Mother's Day - or any day.
You only need a bit of thread size 10 (I used Aunt Lydia's for the pink ones and a grey one that is twisted with a strand of shiny grey mettalic thread), a few crystals or beads, a size 6 or 7 steel crochet hook and a pair of hoop earrings 1 1/8" or so in diameter.
Gauge is really not important with this project.
String the beads first, before sc onto hoops in order on pattern instructions.
Go to Beaded Scallop Earrings for pattern. A PDF file download will be posted soon, after I get my new computer. (I'm borrowing a friend's right now and they don't have the program I need to make a PDF file. Sorry.
