Step 15:  Now pushing the wire with the tip of the index finger on your dominant hand, rotate your jig with your non-dominant hand so that the wire wraps around peg 2 as shown at left.  Continue pushing the wire until the wire tail rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 4 with no pressure applied.  (This technique is important because it allows us to keep the wire tail straight as we work the wire.)Step 16 to Chain, Jewelry Wire and Gemstones Earrings Jewelry Making Project
