• Thanks, Melissa! And thanks for reminding me to give a shoutout to the site that taught me to roll magazines: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/39212/how-to-recycle-magazines-into-jewelry. Obviously, I didn’t use my coils for a necklace, but this site gives a good overview of the process.

      I recommend using the same magazine if you’re making a bunch of coils for one project. Otherwise, the coils will turn out to be different heights because of different magazine sizes. Also, I found that less-expensive magazines (like Woman’s Day or Family Circle) roll up more easily – I think they use a lighter weight of paper than, say, Martha Stewart Living. Only the best for Martha, right!?!?!?
