Step 11: Finally, we add peg 6 to the pattern and wrap the wire
around peg 6 as shown at right.
Step 12: Remove the wire from the jig and cut the excess wire with the flat side of your flush cutters toward the finished piece. Close the final loop made around peg 6 with your bent chain nose pliers. Your duplex wire component should now appear as shown at right. Make three of these duplex wire components for your bracelet and two more for matching earrings.
Step 13: Now we need to make the "end" wire component. This
component allows us to connect our duplex bracelet to a single clasp
instead of a two way clasp. If you have a two way clasp, you can
eliminate this component and modify your bracelet. Begin making the
end component by cutting a 1 1/2 inch segment of 18 gauge wire, preferably
1/2 hard. Make a loop in one end of this wire segment.
Step 14: Straighten this wire segment by pulling through the jaws of your step jaw pliers
Step 15: Now position two metal pegs in your jig and place the initial loop over the lower, right most peg as shown at right.
