Making the pendant shape shown at right is a more advanced project than the Queen of Clubs Earrings we discussed in the prior 8 pages.
Step 1: Using your nylon jaw pliers, Straighten a segment of wire 6 inches long. If your beads have normal size holes, use 20 gauge wire. If you have beads with larger than normal holes, you can use 18 gauge wire. Please note that everyone should practice making this pendant with 20 gauge wire since it is much easier to make with 20 gauge wire.
Step 2: Using your flush cutter, cut this segment of wire.
Step 3: Using your fine step jaw pliers or your round nose pliers, make a loop in one end of this wire. This loop will ultimately be cut off so it is not important that the loop is fully closed.
Step 4: Position your pegs in your jig as shown at right. The jig used in this picture is the WigJig Delphi. There are two regular metal pegs (peg 1 and 4) and three 3/16" Super Pegs (pegs 2, 3 and 5). (Please don't look for logic in this number scheme as you won't find it. Hopefully, you can just accept that the author wasn't paying attention when I numbered these pegs.) This same pattern can also work on the WigJig Centaur and you can modify the pattern slightly for the WigJig Olympus Lite or WigJig Olympus.

Step 5: First, remove peg 5 so that it won't be in your way. Then place your initial loop on peg 1 and wrap the wire around peg 3 as shown at right.
