This has to be one of my favorite of my earring designs.
This has to be one of my favorite of my earring designs. It's simple and clean, big enough to please my daughter, but delicate enough to please me LOL

You can make these in just any color, or combine two colors for a different effect. I've even made some in glow-in-the-dark thread (you can find that usually in the embroidery thread rack)

The pattern is relatively simple, but the thread and hook is small, so can be a little frustrating if you're not used to working with such small things.

As always, if you find anything wrong or confusing, please let me know and I'll fix it as soon as possible :)

    DC Cluster (dc cl) Retaining last loop of each dc on hook, dc in each of next 3 dc, yo and draw through all loops on hook

    F/O

    Block piece with fabric stiffener and allow to dry thoroughly. (I recommend at least 24 hours). If desired, apply several light coats of a non-yellowing spray varnish on both sides, allowing to dry well in between coats. The varnish will help to prevent the earrings from losing shape in very humid or rainy weather.

    Attach chosen earring findings to one of the points of the star as shown.
