End of Materials List
Step 1
Position pegs in the desired design. For a long design, rotate the screw at the base of the handle to lengthen the platform.
Step 2
Make a wire loop about 1/2" from the end of the wire that will fit around your first peg. Use the thumb on your non-dominant hand to hold the wire in place while holding the wooden handle.
Step 3
Place the loop on the first peg and wrap the wire in the direction desired. Make sure when wrapping, that the wire is on either the outside, inside or wrapped completely around the peg. Wrap the wire loosely around the peg for a rounder look or tightly for an angular look.

Example Design 1: Earwire

Step 1
Place three pegs in a triangle design on the platform.
Step 2
Make a loop 1/2" from the end of the wire that will fit around the first peg.
Step 3
Place the loop around the first peg and use the thumb on your non-dominant hand to hold the wire in place while holding the wooden handle.
Step 4
Wrap the extra wire up and over the top peg.
Step 5
Then wrap the wire under the last peg and pull up.
Step 6
Trim the wire at the last peg and the first peg.
Step 7
File the end of the wire that goes into the ear smooth. Then repeat steps 1-7 for a pair of earwires.

Example Design 2: Large Loop Link

Step 1
Place four pegs in a row. Place the large brass ring around the two center pegs.
Step 2
Make a loop 1/2" from the end of the wire that will fit around the first peg.
Step 3
Place the loop around the first peg and use the thumb on your non-dominant hand to hold the wire in place while holding the wooden handle.
Step 4
Wrap the wire over the large middle ring, then down and around the last small peg. Go back under the large ring, then down and around the first small peg.
Step 5
Trim both end wires.
