Chain, Jewelry Wire and Gemstones Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectThis 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 1:  Using your nylon jaw pliers, straighten a segment of 3 1/2" of 18 gauge round soft wire before removing it from the spool or coil of wire. 

Step 2:  Using your flush cutter, cut the straight segment of wire so that it is 3 1/2" long. 

Step 4 to Chain, Jewelry Wire & Gemstones Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectStep 3:  Using your Fine Step Jaw Pliers, make a loop in the end of the wire

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.
