Yeah - yesterday's beads poinginess was from reading three beading magazines that leandra333 gave me, and the cluster design was modified from a design in one of those. The other was modified from a wire-work book. (Also from leandra333.)

They are very lovely, especially the spirals.

The cluster one is really neat too, though, and Starts Me Thinking.

I thought you made earrings from a plastic cup, and now I want to try it. (here, dremel dremel dremel...)

What you actually made is quite nice. Good job!

Ooh pretty!

The middle ones remind me of a bunch of grapes. I like them all.

I'm weird: I like the grape cluster best.

I have a suggestion for future editions of the spiral. When making them in pairs, how about having the spirals have opposite chirality, so that, e.g., the earring worn on one ear would have a left-handed spiral and the one worn on the other would have a right-handed spiral? Instant mirror symmetry!

Seconded. I get funny about earrings with asymmetrical components that point the same direction.... ;-\

Good suggestion! I think the book I was working with suggested it, but I was struggling to put them together at all.

What is the term for the wire that you attached the beads to the findings with? I just made a set of earrings, and I used silk to hang them with. It went OK, but silk being silk, the beads are not being particularly stable in place. I'm never sure what to look for at a bead store in order to use the wire base.

You can attach beads to findings with a jump ring (wire circle) or a head pin (short length of wire with one flat head to keep beads on) twisted at the top to form a ring, or a plain piece of wire twisted into a ring at the bottom and top.
