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.

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.

Thanks for the great tut and for the laugh!
