Alternative Configuration (Continued):
Now we are ready for a slightly more advanced bail project. This project has a lot of steps. We are going to document all 25 steps because following all these steps is what allows us to make this bail finding in a very consistent manner. This is an intermediate jewelry making project.
Step 1: Using your flush cutter, cut a segment of 22 or 24 gauge round wire three inches long. For this project, soft wire works much better.
Step 2: Position a 3/16" Super Peg and a regular metal peg in your jig as shown below-left. Place your wire on the jig so that 3/4" of wire are on one side of the peg and the remaining 2 1/4" of wire are on the opposite side.
Step 3: Hold the short 3/4" wire segment, down with one hand while you wrap the wire around the pegs two times. See the picture below-center.
Step 4: Remove the wire from the jig and it should appear as shown below-right.
