!!!  I saw a similar pair in the store the other day and ALMOST bought them but though, "NO!  I can make them myself!"  Awesome job, they look GREAT!

Eeeee--one of my posts made it to a second page of responses! (Yes, I get happy over weird things.)

i love them... i'm not sure i could work with such a tiny hook without stabbing myself in the eye repeatedly. looks tedious!!!! you could always stick the singles together and make a choker or longer necklace... or if you had a jillion of them you could make garland for an xmas tree or to just drape around... i think it would be pretty!!! oh and you could take and string toether different lengths of them and attach to a stick or something for a window hanging/curtainy thing. =)

It could be worse--5 is actually on the larger side of the steel hooks.  I've got a 14 (an aunt gave me all her old crochet hooks and yarn a while back) that doesn't look like it would hook sewing thread, let alone anything else.  Needless to say, I've yet to use it.

I kind of like the curtain idea, by the way.  I'll need to make a lot more though . . .

Actually a 14 will hook sewing thread. I tried it once and went all cross-eyed trying to see the stitches. You need patience and a lot of good light to work with the tiny hooks. I've got a 15 and a 16 too, but haven't been brave enough to try using them. :-)
  Btw, I love the earrings. With a little modification they look like they could be pentacles.

Those are so cute - I could see me making a pair in every color to match my wardrobe.  Great idea!  I'm gonna have to try this one!

these are really cute and i like that you used the kind of floss that changes the colour, it does add the 'wow' factor Smiley
i have made one pair of crochet earrings too, and when wearing them, one of the earrings got lost (luckily, i found it!). it is probably because they are so lightweight (and depends on what you're wearing, i was wearing some sort of jacket with high collar, maybe that pushed the earring out Undecided)

Yeah, I've had that happen, too.  Luckily my niece noticed it dangling precariously and pointed it out so I didn't lose it.  Good thing there was an observant 3-year-old around; otherwise one of the dogs might have eaten it!
