While this project is relatively easy to complete, and can
be completed by anyone who can connect wire components using a wrapped
bead link, there are several steps involved. The first few steps are
involved in making the yoke component shown at right.
The spiral-diamond wire component can be made on any WigJig. The
particular piece made for the necklace shown here was made on the WigJig
Cyclops using the peg pattern shown at right. This pattern makes a
1/2 diamond based upon a 60 degree angle. When using the Olympus,
Olympus-Lite or Delphi, the peg pattern will be similar to the pattern
shown at right, but will be based upon a 45 degree angle.
The steps for making this necklace begin below.
Step 1: Cut and
straighten a piece of 18 or 20G wire 7.5 inches long.
Step 2: Make a "P" loop in one end of this wire.
