For a quick coiling idea, use a forming plier, coiling tool or jumpring mandrel to create a small diameter (i.e. 2mm - 5mm) green coil. Attach the coil end to your charm. Trim the end with a fine-tip flush-cutter then tuck that end into the coil to hide the sharp point. Repeat as many times as you like for your polymer clay carrot earring charm.
When embedding the wire into the clay, be sure to coil or bend the end that is inserted into the clay. The bend will help keep the wire in place after the clay has been cured, otherwise the wire could pull right out.
