Springy Necklace

About this design:

Thanks to everyone's tips and inspiration on working with wire. :D I've created springs that I thought were interesting and appropriate since spring has sprung! :)

The crimp beads and jump rings don't look copper coated to me, but when I bought them that's how they were labeled, so I'm guessing it's right.

    I’m really liking these coiled beads in the bracelet and necklace. It’s a fresh and modern look with the mixed metals.

    Thanks Fresh Baked! I started my wire experiments simply by wrapping the wire around needle nose pliers. In the end I found it simple but effective. ;) :)
