I've threaded brass wire thru them and looped each end. The bottom curl has been pounded so that it's a little flat. Each is hung and separated by freshwater cultured pearls in the most beautiful luminescent khakis and teal, irregularly shaped and quite kinky! It's adorable on a real body.
The matching earrings are hung from bronze dangles made by hand by my friend Renee Chock of Albuquerque, NM. (Click on the photo for a larger picture.)
