There are two techniques that are involved in making these three stars.  The first is to make the basic wire component by wrapping 18 or 20 gauge wire around pegs on the jig.  The second technique is to use very fine wire (24 or 26 gauge) to wrap around the larger wire setting the shape in place.   

Jewelry Supplies:

  • Ten inches of 16, 18 or 20G wire per star (1/2 hard wire will work best if available.)
