Alternative Designs (Continued):
This alternative design achieves the "V" shape in a different way. Instead of using pegs arranged in three different radius of your jig, in this alternative, you will use one tier with five loops, the middle tier with 4 loops and the bottom tier with three loops, all at the same radius on your jig. In making these earrings the top wire component is made the same as is the large wire component (with five loops). The pattern for the large wire component is shown below-right.
The middle wire component is made with pegs 1, 2, 3 and 4 from this same pattern.
The small wire component is made with pegs 1, 2 and 3 from this same
Once you have these three wire components made, you assemble these
earrings in a manner that is similar to the technique discussed in pages
11 and 12, with one exception. For these earrings the connections
between the three tiers of wire components (large to middle and middle to
small) takes place between the outer loops in each wire component.
For these earrings, because the small wire component is larger than the same component in the earrings shown on page 9, you can use a larger bead dangle in the middle of the small wire component. For these earrings, I used an 8mm bead here instead of a 6mm bead.
In the following pages we will show some patterns for 2 tier "V" designs that can be made on any WigJig jewelry making tool.
