Like two years ago or maybe longer, I made keychains with the same kebob as in the above earrings. Someone asked how I got the marble to stay inside. The trick is to use 18 gauge or larger wire, hammer the swirls before putting the marble in. Secure the marble as best as possible (use needlenosed pliers if necessary) within the spiral and-- very important-- use the tail as the final marble holder.

A tutorial:

These are wonderful!

And I literally LOL'd at the "grab the sinister mustache in the middle . . . " section of the tutorial.

Thanks for the great tut and for the laugh!

If I gave voice to half the weirdness that goes through my mind when I'm making stuff, the white-coats would netted me a long time ago.

I made a set of these years ago for a younger cousin, happily she can still wear them! Tongue
