Starfish Earrings

I spent a few days last week at the beach, hence, the lack of blog updates, but it brought to mind a project I did a couple of years ago for a beachside craft fair – crochet Starfish Earrings.  It’s a great little crochet project.  These quirky earrings are lightweight and perfect for some summer…
