See our Larger Leaf Clubs wire component at right. This wire component is larger than the prior components that we made. It also has loops at the end of each "leaf" in the design. These loops allow you to hang bead dangles or other decorative components from each loop. This is a significant advantage over the previous designs, where without these loops, you won't be able to easily keep a bead dangle in the appropriate position.
At this point we believe that we have pretty well documented the steps in making similar wire components so we aren't going to describe how to make this wire component in the same detail as we have previously. If you can make the wire component that we described in pages 14 through 16, you will be able to make this wire component. We will describe the changes in the instructions in detail and allow the reader to use our prior instructions where they haven' t changed.
The peg pattern for making this wire component can be seen below center. Both the 3/16" Super Peg and the regular metal pegs are positioned further apart to make this component. When wrapping the wire around the pegs, you wrap partially around the Super Peg, then around the opposite side of the regular metal peg and back around the Super Peg. Let's describe in detail the process for making the loops around pegs 2 and 3. The same process will apply for all other loops. Start by placing the loop in the end of your wire on peg 1, then bring the wire from peg 1 so that it is above peg 2 (in the same position as for our prior designs). Then wrap the wire clockwise, 1/2 way around peg 2 and counter clockwise around peg 3. After wrapping the wire counter-clockwise around peg 3, wrap the wire clockwise around the other half of peg 2 until it is touching peg 6.

We hope that one of these alternatives will be interesting for our readers.
