Now we need to make the handle to the shovel.
Step 2: Cut a 2 1/2" piece of 20 g wire (preferably 1/2 hard).
|Step 4: Remove peg 4 from the jig and place your initial loop on peg 1. Bend the wire against peg 2 as shown at right. When you are done, the wire should rest against peg three, only barely touching this peg. If the wire is tight against peg 3, push the wire further against peg 2 until it is just barely touching peg 3.||
|Step 5: Now wrap the wire around peg 3. When you are completed, the wire needs to rest so that peg 4 can be replaced and the wire will just barely touch peg 4. If the wire is tight against peg 4, push it some more.||

This WigJig jewelry project is provided as part of WigJig University - College of Jewelry Designs. We try to provide interesting jewelry projects using beads, jewelry wire and other jewelry supplies. We hope that these pictures will provide you enough information for you to complete this project. Some of the skills and jewelry making techniques have not been discussed here. For beginners, we suggest that you visit our Beginners Start Here pages. These pages discuss the skills necessary for making jewelry in the detail that beginners need. We also suggest that beginners to jewelry might need to visit the WigJig University College of Jewelry Techniques for additional information about some of the skills and techniques shown.
Most, but not all of the jewelry supplies shown here can be purchased in our WigJig store. We try to have a complete selection of jewelry supplies in our store including chain, wire, glass beads, findings, watches, tools, etc.
