The minor rings were made by the Mirdain on their own, before the advent of "Annatar." It was he whose knowledge enabled them to make the Great Rings... and even though Sauron didn't participate in the making of the Three, nonetheless Celebrimbor unwittingly included ""Mordorsoft" code in their firmware, so to speak.

:D Great way of putting it!

I'd forgotten that the lesser rings came before Sauron's influence. I've also forgotten where that's written. Appendices? Unfinished Tales? HoME? Letters?
