Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail Jewelry Making Finding Step 5Triangular Jewelry Wire Bail (Continued):

Step 5:  Wrap your wire tightly around the three pegs in the center of the WigJig Centaur or Cyclops two times.  You may find that it will be easier to wrap tightly by removing one peg at a time to allow you to push the wire past that peg.  There are two wraps of wire around the central pegs shown at right, but from this perspective you can only see the top of the two wire triangles. 

Step 6:  Remove the wire from the jig and it should appear as shown below-left.

Step 7:  Using your round nose pliers, grip the triangles of wire slightly on the left of center at the point of the triangle, and bend the long wire tail down as shown below-center.  Your goal is that the long wire tail points to the center of the triangle. 

Step 8:  Place your wire back on the jig with the initial loop in the position shown below-right.  You can remove the left-most peg if this will help.  We are putting the wire back on the jig because in the next step we have to start the wrap of the initial wire segment around the longer wire tail and the jig will help to preserve the shape of the triangles of wire.
