Step 18: Add peg 8 to your pattern as shown below-left.
You won't need to flip this wire component over as it will be two layers
of wire whether you flip it over or not.
Step 19: Wrap the wire around peg 8 as shown
below-center. As before, push the wire with the tip of the index
finger on your dominant hand.
Step 20: Remove your wire component from your jig. At this point the wire component should appear as shown below-right.
Step 21: Using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire from the wire component. When completed the Small "V" Shaped Wire Component should appear as shown at right.
Step 22: Now we need to make figure 8 connectors using our step jaw pliers and round nose pliers. Use 22 gauge wire to match the wire you used to make your v shaped wire components. Instructions for making figure 8 connectors can be found by selecting here. Make 10 or 22 figure 8 connectors according to which style of earrings you want to make. For beginners, it will be easier to assemble these earrings if you make larger loops in your figure 8 connector. Try the middle step in your step jaw pliers. For more advanced wire workers, we used the first step in our step jaw pliers and a lot of patience to make the earrings shown.
