Step 14: We begin making the bottom wire component (upside down in the picture at right) by adding peg 1 and 2 to our jig as shown and placing the initial loop in your wire segment on peg 1.
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: Remove the wire from the jig and add peg 3 to your pattern. Replace the wire on your jig with the initial loop on peg 2, the send loop on peg 1 and the wire tail adjacent to peg 3 as shown at right. Essentially you are flipping your wire over.
Step 17: Now push the wire around peg 3 so that the wire tail rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 5 as shown at left.
Step 18: Remove the wire from your jig. Add peg 4 and replace the wire on the jig with the initial loop on peg1 orientated as shown at right.
Step 19: Using the technique described above, wrap the wire around peg 4 and continue pushing until the wire rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 6 as shown at left.
Step 20: Remove the wire from your jig. Add peg 5 and replace the wire on your jig with the initial loop on peg 4 and orientated as shown at right.
Step 21: Wrap the wire around peg 5 and continue pushing the wire until with no pressure applied the wire tail will rest adjacent to the empty hole for peg 7 as shown at left.
