I knew I couldn't NOT make something, especially since it's too cold to do much else! I got a catalog in the mail and it was full of wonderful jewelry and clothing and handbags, I'm drooling just thinking about everything I wanted. Their prices were a bit high on most things. They had these really neat earrings that they called the "Spiral of Life". I thought, I bet I could make those. So I did. The one on the left turned out better than the right one but still not to bad for my first try. (sorry for the poor photo quality, I didn't have my good camera tonight) I used sterling wire and I hammered them just a bit in the center like they showed in the book. I struggled with getting the exact match on roundness but then after the fact watched a couple of youtube videos and discovered how to make that easier. Here is a simple video on wire spiraling.
