Spiral Ear Wire Jewelry Making TechniqueThis jewelry making technique is the technique for making the spiral, post-style ear wire show here.  This ear wire must be made with soft wire, either gold, gold-filled, sterling silver or anti-tarnish sterling silver.  Silver and gold-plated wire are not recommended.  Artistic Wire is not appropriate because of the presence of dyes in this wire.
