Beaded earrings with spiral wire

I’d had this idea brewing in my head about huge pearl-bead earrings with seed-bead encased wire attached above and below the pearl beads. I first used two beaded wires for each earring, but the effect wasn’t really that great. I then ditched one of the beaded wires. Now, the earring looked a bit weird. I tried hammering the wire so it can be used by itself, without seed beads on it. Nope, didn’t like that either. Finally, I decided to just make a rough spiral from a flimsy, flat wire.
