Coiled wire embellishments to just plain wire certainly adds texture and elegance to wire jewelry designs. There are different ways. This first tutorial for coiled and twisted wire earrings over on the Kreativ Vagyok site is by Erika Schneider. Here the wire coiling is carried out on a long wire. The embellished wire is then twisted and looped. The beads are then wired onto the final design. I would use a wire coiling tool to make the coiling go faster instead of just manually wrapping around the main wire.
Erika's other earrings tutorial also uses coils and twists but in a totally different manner. She makes a coil which she then stretches and then twists flat. These are the even wire loops you see wire wrapped around the wire frame. This design can easily be made into a pendant.
