Step 12 to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making ProjectStep 12:  Measure with your ruler 2" from the center of the bottom of the wire component along the end of the wire.  Grasp the wire at the point 2" from the center with your bent chain nose pliers and bend the wire up 90 degrees as shown at right.  (We are going to recreate the bend on the initial end of the wire now on this end.  These bends allow us to use our WigJig Spiral Maker to make a spiral at either end.)Step 13 to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making Project

Step 13:  Using your round nose pliers make a 180 degree bend in the wire, on the longer segment of wire, but as near the bend as possible.  When completed your 180 degree bend should appear as shown Step 13B to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making Projectat left.  At this point, your wire component should appear as shown at right and we are ready to use our WigJig Spiral Maker to make spirals at either end.  Step 14 to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making Project

Step 14:  Now we are ready to use our Spiral Maker.  For anyone who isn't familiar with making a spiral using the Spiral Maker, we have a You Tube video that shows how to use our Spiral Maker.  You can view that You Tube video here.   Make spirals on both ends of the wire component.  The Spiral Maker won't allow you to complete the spirals, so the best you will be able to do is to make partial spirals on either end as shown at left.  Step 15 to Double Spirals Jewelry Wire & Beads Bracelet Jewelry Making Project

Step 15:  To complete this wire component, first cut the segments of wire bent 90 degrees from the center of each spiral (the portion of wire that went inside the hole in the spiral maker.)  Once you have cut that excess wire, use your bent chain nose pliers to slowly complete the spirals with a series of small bends of the wire.  With the two spirals completed they should appear as shown at right. 

Step 16:  The final step in making the double spiral wire component is to harden the wire by squeezing it in the jaws of your nylon jaw pliers.   Make five double spiral wire components using these steps.
