The next component to make is the 5 loop wire component. This
component is made with 3 1/4" of 20 gauge wire and the peg pattern shown
at right. Start by cutting your wire segment. Then make a loop
in the end of the segment. Grasp the loop and straighten the wire
segment by pulling it through the jaws of your nylon jaw pliers. Now
place pegs 1 and 2 in your jig, as shown at right, and place the initial
loop on peg 1. Wrap the wire around peg 2 until the wire tail is
adjacent to the hole for peg 3. Add peg 3 and wrap the wire around
this peg, leaving the wire tail adjacent to the hole for peg 4. Add
peg 4 and wrap the wire around this peg, leaving the tail adjacent to the
hole for peg 5. Add peg 5 and wrap the wire around peg 5 as shown at
right. Remove the wire from the jig and cut the excess. Close
the loop made on peg 5 with your bent chain nose pliers.
The bottom, 3 loop wire component for the earrings shown above-right, is made
using the same steps and procedures as you used for making the 5 loop wire
component, only with three pegs and three loops. The peg patterns
for making this component uses pegs 1, 2, and 3 as shown at right.
