That's a good idea! Battlespeed

You can easily add some bling to this earring: Before doing the last small curl, form a small ball of crystal clay or DeCoRe clay, and press it between your fingers so that it has a somewhat flatter shape (or you could leave it spherical if desired).

Now, bend the last small curl around the clay, such that the wire is embedded in the clay. Now, simply press a chaton into the clay. This type of clay air-cures so no heating is required.

An alternative would be to simply create some sort of dangle (e.g. headpin with Swarovski crystals, beads, etc. and attach this to the small curl using a jump ring.

I really like these earrings!

Well Rainey makes stuff, you could just put them through, I mean, if you have a closed earring or something, you could put it through the bottom
Any thoughts for people with stretched ears? I'd love to make and wear these but unfortunately my lobes are stretched and I cant :(
