Delicate coils of amethyst wire spiral towards hammered and stamped silver flowers for a simply stunning pair of earrings. I love using these coils in my jewelry designs, you can make them in all different colors, vary the lengths, and add beads or crystals in between. They look fabulous on rosary style chain designs or as segments in bracelets and earrings. Don't fret if you're not a metal stamping enthusiast, you can add any charms or beads you prefer instead. If you don't have a Coiling Gizmo, use a metal dowel and hand coil the wire around it, the tool speeds up the process.
