ok sorry for the quality, but I made these earrings

and they are pretty cut,e but I used fairly thin wire and whenever i wear them they just bend back and forth and every which a way.  Does anyone have any ideas about how to make them a little more stable?

use some head nad eye pins, they are sturdier metal and all you have to do is put the beads on them and create a loop at the end to attach it to the earring post.  you can get them anywhere they sell jewelry supplies pretty much

Ugh! I had a disaster with that wire (if it is the same kind Im thinking about). I made some really funky chunky necklaces for some friends for christmas presents and the wire was soo thin that all of them broke!!!! Ugh. For my beading endavors now I only use pins and that elastic thread stuff. boobs!
