    i have old crochet hooks(great grandmothers) would size 11 or 14 work for earrings?

  2. Candice, these are really pretty! Nice pattern! :)

    Maria, this is just a guess, but I think your project would turn out small, but that might be a nice look. You should give it a try and see how it goes.
