I would wager than you, a crafty individual, have hobbies other than crochet. I have a few things I dabble in, and every once in a while I get out my beads and make some simple jewelry. I designed these crochet cactus earrings on a whim, and was ecstatic that I got the arms to work out so well (I needed a win this week!) . When I pulled out my jewelry making supplies, I found I had several beads and trinkets that I had intended on making into earrings ages ago but hadn’t got around to it.
There’s no time like the present. Thirty minutes later I have 4 new pairs of earrings!
The design for these cactus earrings took a bit of puzzling. I was hoping to avoid having to make 2 layers per earring, and I figured out a way by making the arms one piece. I also highly recommend using Stiffy to make them stiff. It changes the color of your thread very slightly so keep that in mind (makes it a bit darker) , but I am very happy with the stiffer result, especially for earrings.

I thought about adding a little flower to the top of my crochet cactus earrings, but couldn’t quite make it work with crochet. I wonder if beads would work better…
