Twisted Day Four Earrings!

I love these. They really pushed me to figure out how to rework my design. I have thumbs therefore I am smarter than the wire!
 To build the earrings you use a heavy gauge wire and slip the coil over the wire. See the ending of the earrings, I added a little dangle, then I wanted a gradual build of smaller to larger and incorporate some different metals, but I didn't have metal findings that fit over the wire AND the coil. So I put the findings over the heavy gauge wire, then I slipped the coil on. I did have large hole beads that fit over both the wire and the coil. I am a stickler for earring shapes. I like to add small findings on the end and gradually build up the shapes, instead of a putting something large, then small, then large again, then medium, too jerky, not fluid enough.
 
UPDATE:

I am going to pick the winners of all three projects tomorrow night instead of tonight. My little family is going though a hard time right now. We are lucky that during tough times we stand strong and united so we can carry the burden and stress. I am so blessed that my husband, son and daughter are committed to each other and when one needs more support we pull together. We will be fine and will get though it.
Also I want to thank each and everyone of you who have followed this little Twisted game and left such lovely comments. It really means the world to me. You guys rock.
