Drawing a spring with profile

Hello SE users!

 

I want to make a spring in solid edge, actually it is an open garter spring, so it has smaller radius 3cm from the tip. I tried to make a sweep with different profiles, but it didn't work. 

The spring I want to draw is this from the picture... I believe it may be simple, but I can't find a way to do this, can anyone help me?

Hi,

 

 

if You are using ST8 then You can create the new helix curve where all parameters can be defined as You need it.
