      How do you make the earrings stiff?

      They are definitely lighter, it won't deform your ears no matter how big the earring is or how long you wear them.

      Thanks for the comment. :-)

      I've never seen anyone wearing crochet earrings before- these look so cool, and they must be more comfortable to wear since they're lighter!

      I don't know about nail polish, Patrice. I don't use them. :-) But I'll include that in my experiments.

      Moira, what about clear nail polish as a stiffener??

      My daughter didn't have any of the fish hooks but she told me where I can get them cheap.

      Thanks LABrashear! I've had this idea of crocheting with thread since 10 years ago. Although it's just now that I created patterns that works with it.

      Hi RTalloni! Yes, crocheting with thread and playing with colors is a lot of fun. My sister who crochets too thinks it looks so expensive though it really isn't.

      Crocheting with such tiny threads is intriguing. Also, playing with colors using the sewing thread seems like it would be a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing your work.
