52 Weeks - Marisa

I found instructions for making these swirly earrings that "screw" into your ears in a wire magazine at work, so I had to try it. I used 20 gauge craft wire, Swarovski crystals, and silver accent beads. I hammered the ends, strung on the beads, stuck the beaded end of the wire into the barrel of a pen, and spiralled the rest of the wire around the outside of the pen. The tricky part is making the second earring mirror the first.
