Spiral Link Earrings Jewelry Making Design Made with Tanzanite Swarovski BeadsStep 1:  Cut a segment of soft wire 9 inches long.  It is slightly easier to use 20 gauge wire than 18 gauge wire so practice this technique in 20 gauge wire.  For the earrings use 20 gauge wire for your finished piece.  For the bracelet, 18 gauge wire may be better.

Step 2:  Using your nylon jaw pliers straighten this segment of wire. 

Step 3:  Grasp the wire 2 inches from one end with your bent chain nose Spiral Link Jewelry Making Design Step 4pliers.  Bend the wire 90 degrees. 

Step 4:  Grip the wire with your round nose pliers on the 7" long wire segment but as close to the bend as possible and wrap the wire about 1/4 of the way around the jaw of your pliers. 

Step 5:  Insert the 2" wire segment into one of the holes on your Step 5 to Spiral Link Jewelry Making DesignSpiral Maker and then insert the metal peg in the Spiral Maker into one of the holes on your jig. 

Step 6:  Turn your jig over while holding the Spiral Maker in position with one finger.  While looking through your jig, begin pulling the wire around the center peg in your Spiral Step 7 to Spiral Link Jewelry Making DesignMaker about 45 degrees at a time. 

Step 7:  Continue wrapping the wire around the center peg, adjusting the pressure so that you get a tight spiral but not so tight that it will over-ride the prior loop.  Wrap the wire until you have about 2 inches of wire remaining.  Step 8 for Spiral Link Jewelry Making Design

Step 8:  Remove the wire from your Spiral Maker.  Ideally, with the vertical wire at the 12 o'clock position on the center circle, the unused wire tail should separate from the spiral at the 3 o'clock position.
