Step 22: Remove the wire from your jig. Add peg 7 to the pattern and replace the wire on your jig with the initial loop on peg 7 with the remainder of the wire orientated as shown at right.
Step 23: Now wrap the wire around peg 4 as shown at left. Continue pushing the wire until the wire tail rests adjacent to the empty hole for peg 6 with no pressure applied.
Step 24: For our last loop, we don't need to remove the wire from your jig. Just add peg 6 and wrap the wire around peg 6 as shown at right.
Step 25: Remove the wire from your jig and using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire. Using your bent chain nose pliers, close the final loop in your wire component. At this point, the bottom wire component should appear as shown at left.
Step 26: Now we are ready to connect the top and bottom wire components. To do this, we first use our bent chain nose pliers and open the loop on one end of the bottom wire component, connect that loop to one of the bottom loops in the top wire component and again using our bent chain nose pliers, close that loop. To connect the opposite side of the top and bottom wire components is slightly more difficult. You will need to open the end loop on that end of the bottom wire component and open the end loop on the top wire component. With both loops open, connect that side of the two components and then close both loops. The two connected components should appear as shown at right.
Step 27: At this time, we need to set our gemstones in our low wall bezel findings. Get your 10mm and 8mm low wall bezel findings (10mm is Item 3209 in gold-filled and item 3211 in sterling silver. 8mm is item 3210 in gold filled and item 3212 in sterling silver. You can view our selection of gemstones here.) Set both the 10mm and 8 mm gemstones following steps A through D shown below.
