Mini Beaded Loop Earrings

Purple Loop Earrings

I'm all but drooling over these sparklies. And the color is perfect for spring! These little darlings are just one example of graphic design and photography major Shanna Tise's gift for color and shape.

One special feature of these earrings is the use of crocheted knots.
In Shanna's own words:
"The art of crocheted knots is one of my most favorite things...I also think it is beautiful and breathtaking."
In addition to crocheted knots, Shanna also used the single crochet stitch and the chain stitch. A speacial tip for our readers a la Shanna: "The secret to using beads is [to] thread your beads before the start of your project."

Shanna's Favorite stitch??  The Front Post Puff Stitch      
Shanna loves to experiment on different ways of using this particular stitch and uses it in her designs as often as she can. Check out her store and see how many items you can count that have the puff stitch!
