two wires coiled together.. need help

Hi,I need help trying to create something like the wires of this light fixture:

they’re coiled together. I’ve tried the screw modifier but I just can’t nail the look down. any help would be much appreciated.

Addons, Testing: Oscurart Chain&Rope Maker. Add Curve.
Hope helps.

You’re on the right lines with the screw modifier. in top view centre your cursor, create a circle, move the circle just off centre and then press SHFT+CTRL+ALT+C and move the origin to 3d cursor. Add a mirro modifier and apply it. then use the screw modifier as in the screen shot.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Wig
