I'm a little bit of a jack of all trades, master of none type person. This isn't my first first piece of jewelry, but it's the beginning of me attempting more then simple single strand bracelets/necklaces.

These earrings were definitely from memory of seeing something by someone else probably a couple years ago. I can't remember were I saw them or who I saw them from, but I give any credit to you from my take of them.

very fun! the only comment I have is that you might want to close the spiral somehow, I have earrings of a similar style to this and the dangle is always coming out and getting caught sticking out weirdly  Grin

Thanks all!

As for closing the spiral, I had thought of that after the fact. I didn't use the proper kind of wire for the earrings and they were much harder to manipulate then I had anticipated.  Learning curve of it, I guess.

at least it means they should hold their shape well - such a toss up between something easy to work with and something that won't pull out of shape if it snags on something (and I am terrible with getting things snagged)

live and learn, right?  Cheesy keep crafting, these are super cute either way.
