My first encounter with crochet was the granny square and ripple afghans my grandmothers made. Today, many of the colors used would make the afghans appear outdated. I really enjoy crocheting jewelry and wanted to put a modern spin on this classic motif. I like playing around with color combinations, and with this pattern, I can create an earring and ring set to match any outfit.

The Designer I taught myself to knit and crochet three years ago so I could create handmade Christmas gifts. This was my third attempt at it, and I finally got it!
I have a degree in Studio Art, and my creations & materials used are the result of whatever strikes my creativity. It can be pretty random, but my friends would say that’s quite fitting for me.
I own a shop on Etsy called CsqDesigns, and I write on my blog CsqDesigns. CsqDesigns can also be found on Twitter at @CsqDesigns and www.fb/csqdesigns. For questions about this pattern, please contact Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
