Here is an alternative but similar design made on the WigJig Delphi or the square peg pattern part of the WigJig Centaur.  For these earrings we elected to use "Style 2" for our top wire component and were able to eliminate the need for a modified figure 8 connector.  For this reason, there are three wire components in these earrings plus an ear wire finding.  The three wire components are the top wire component, the 5 loop wire component and the 3 loop wire component.

The top wire component is made using the patterns shown at right.  This component is made with about 2 inches of 20 gauge wire.  The steps in making this wire component are the same as the steps that we described previously.  Simply stated they are cut the wire, make a loop, straighten the wire, position your pegs on the jig, wrap the wire around the pegs, remove the wire from the jig, cut the excess wire, close the final loop, convert the initial and final loops to eye loops and finally to rotate the initial and final loops 90 degrees.  The finished wire component will appear as shown at right.

The peg patterns for the 3 loop and 5 loop wire components are shown at right.  The 3 loop component uses 1 3/4" of 20 gauge wire and the 5 loop wire component uses 3 1/4" of 20 gauge wire.  Remember that when you are making a multi-peg pattern, start with just two pegs and add pegs as you go.  After wrapping the wire around the pegs as shown, remove from the jig, cut the excess and close the final loop with your bent chain nose pliers.
