so a friend on mine bought me these earrings and i just fell in love! and i was checking them out and thought, "i could probably make these!" so i went to a million craft stores and couldn't find the coiled wire that i needed... then i looked online and tried to see if there was some sort of tutorial... nothing. so i was just curious if anyone had any insight (or a tutorial!) on how to make them. the part i most confused about is not wrapping the string but how to finish them.

that's what you need! it's a jig that helps you wrap the wire into a coil. My brother has one and it's really easy and fun to do!

p.s. I love these earrings. I saw them at ALDO and I knew I'd see someone around here attempt them Smiley
