This jewelry making project requires us to make two wire components and then interconnect the two components. In the following step-by-step instructions we will begin by making the top wire component (the part that connects to the ear wire) and follow by making the bottom wire component (the part that connects to the chain).
Step 4: Position three regular pegs and one 3/4" Super Pegs as shown at right. The jig shown is a WigJig Centaur, but the Cyclops or Electra would also work. The large, white 3/4" Super Pegs is placed in the center hole of the round part of the peg pattern. Regular metal pegs 1, 2, and 3 are placed just outside the 3/4" Super Peg.
Step 5: With your pegs in the position shown, place your initial loop on peg 1 and wrap the wire up to peg 2 as shown below-left.
Step 6: Now bend the wire back against peg 2 as shown below-center.
Step 7: Because it is easier to remove the wire to complete the loop around peg 2, remove the wire from your jig and using your Fine Step Jaw Pliers make a loop at the bend around peg 2, then replace the wire on the jig as shown below-right.
