Granny Square Earrings

If you're like us, after last week's Crocheting with Wire tutorial, you'll be itching to try out your first wire project! Our Granny Square Earrings are the perfect beginner's project. It uses a pattern you probably already know by heart--the traditional granny square--and is simply worked in a new medium. What could be easier? Give it a go! I'll help you out if you get stuck.
