There are many variations of thread earrings, and Amanda followed the traditional teardrop shape. Feel free to use any shape or color that best fits your style! Amanda used a superfine 30-gauge colored copper wire that looks just like thread but still leaves these earrings lightweight and easy to wear! So go for it . . .  take a time machine back to the 1960s.
