You know the saying "It's hip to be square" - well, for crafters its also hip to use squares. The great things about shapes, and in this instance squares, is that they can either be the shape of the piece you are using, or they can be used to create patterns within the piece that you are using. Squares may not have been so fun at school, but when it comes to craft, they can be great fun, especially when used to form the shape of something that might usually be round - thing square rings, square earrings etc.
One of my signature designs, one I even wrote a tutorial for, is my Geometric Squares Bracelet, where squares have been built up around a central gemstone.
Here are some more examples of square craft work from members of the Jet and the BrisStyle teams:
