how do you make a SPIRAL wind chime/decoration that will spin freely in the wind? Answered

I am trying to make various crystals spin in the wind. I have even gone to the extreme of buying ball bearing fishing swivels to make it happen...not so much. Any way I think I need some sort of a spiral to actually "catch" the wind to propel the heavy crystal around. Anybody make these if you are willing to share that would be great. I don't need to reinvent the wheel.

You can probably make a spiral out of wood (Popsicle sticks in the example here.  Or you can try something like this https://www.instructables.com/id/About-Wind-Spinner/.  I had a wind spinner once made from nylon, it spun really well though it was quite large.
