Step 5 to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making ProjectStep 5:  Position your initial 180 degree bend on peg 1 and remove all the pegs except peg 2 from your jig.  Wrap the wire around peg 2 as shown at right.  Push the wire until it rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 3 with no pressure applied.  (In our template we positioned the pattern at the edge of the jig so it would be easier to see where to place the pegs.)  This is a component where you could leave all the pegs in position.  You might not need to start with just two pegs in the pattern because there is adequate room to push the wire down.  We added pegs as we went because that is our habit for any piece we make.  The following steps will describe how we flip the wire component over after making each loop.  This makes the finished wire component flatter and better looking.Step 6 to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making Design

Step 6:  Remove the wire component from your jig.  Place peg three in your jig as shown at left.  Replace your wire component on the jig so that the loop made on peg 2, is now on peg 3.  Now wrap the wire around peg 2 until the wire rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 5 with no pressure applied.  Please note that because of the way we made the initial 180 degree bend there is a short segment of wire that prevents us from using a peg like peg 1 for the end of the wire.  The end of the wire is off the jig and not attached to any peg.  When this step is completed, your wire should appear as shown at left.

Step 7:  Remove the wire from the jig and add peg 4 to your pattern.  Replace your wire component on the jig in the mirror image position, then wrap the wire around peg 4 until the wire rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 5 with no pressure applied.  When completed your wire should appear as shown at right.  Please note that when we performed this step, we found it easier to move peg 1 a couple of holes so that it worked better.  You may decide that you don't want to bother with peg 1 and you can remove it from the pattern.
