Step 7: Now using a WigJig Olympus, Olympus Lite, Delphi or Centaur, position two pegs in your jig as show at right. Place the initial loop in your wire on the lower of the two pegs, peg 1. (We have a .pdf template for this peg pattern that you can print and use to help determine where to place your pegs for your WigJig Delphi or Centaur here.)
Step 8: Using the tip of the index finger on your dominant hand, push the wire with your finger as close to peg 2 as possible. While you are pushing the wire with the tip of your index finger on your dominant hand, rotate the jig counter-clockwise using your non-dominant hand. Using your index finger guide the wire up and over peg 1 until the wire is in the position shown at left.
Step 9: Add peg 2 to your pattern and remove the wire from the jig. Replace the wire back on the jig in the mirror image position as shown at right. The reason that the wire was removed from the jig and flipped over is that the finished piece that results will lay flatter by doing this.
Step 10: Now we need to wrap the wire around peg 2 a second time. We do this by pushing the wire with the index finger on our dominant hand while we rotate the jig in a counter-clockwise direction using our non-dominant hand. Guide the wire with your index finger over peg 1 until the wire rests in the position shown at left.
Step 11: Remove the wire from your jig and grasp the clover component you made on pegs 1, 2 and 3 in the jaws of your nylon jaw pliers as shown at right. Squeeze gently in several orientations until the wire settles into its final shape and then give the wire a good firm squeeze.
Step 12: Remove the wire from the jaws of your nylon jaw pliers. At this point the wire should appear as shown at left. If the wire doesn't appear exactly like this, this is the time to do some "Hand Finishing" and maneuver the wire using your round nose pliers and your fingers into this shape.
