    I know how she does it..Magic !! right Spiral Chick? You’ve got to have the magic spiral gene, I’m sure of it :D ! Without the magic spiral gene you get those little lopsides and imperfections…etc. But you’ve got it and we love it! Keep on spiralling!

    Cookie ~ I’m not sure about me having the magic spiral gene, it took a couple (make that 4!) of attempts to get the spirals matching! :D I obviously need some more magic spiral dust!

    Glassy chick Sonal says:

    Hey…those are wonderful…could you please share how you make these kind of spirals?

  31. No Photo
    Starsparkle Spiral Chick says:

    Sonal ~ to make these spirals you start with a loop using roundnose pliers then swap to flatnose pliers holding the loop horizontally with the end of the wire pointing to the left. Hold the end of the wire in your left hand & twist your right wrist anti~clockwise to continue the spiral making it as tight or loose as you want it. Keep moving the spiral round in the flatnose pliers so the end of the wire is aways pointing to the left. Its all in the wrist action! :)
    Does this make sense? I hope it does! :D

  32. Glassy chick Sonal
    Glassy chick Sonal says:

    Thank you very much for sharing the info…I make the spirals the same way and I am using 20 gauge silver wire. It seems nice soft to work with however I face 3 problems:
    1. I am able to make only close spirals that is the loops do not have space in between.
    2. I do not know how to make them same for all the beads I am using, they tend to get different all the time.
    3. They are getting the marks of my flatnose pliers on them.
    PLEASE Help me :(
