Step 9: Now using your round nose pliers. Grasp the loop on either end of the handle wire component and bend it, one at a time, into an eye loop. The technique for doing this is shown here. When done, the handle should appear as shown at right.
|Step 10: Now one at a time, we need to bend these eye loops so that they are perpendicular to the rest of the handle wire component. In the picture at right, you can not see the two loops because they are vertical while the rest of the wire componet is horizontal.||
|Step 11: To help make both bend in this wire component as symmetrical as possible, replace the wire component onto the jig as shown at right and bend both loops up until they just barely touch peg 1 or 5. Generally, this requires some bending of the wire on the side that was made second (against peg 4).||

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.
