Earrings

STEP 1

Cut 3-inches of 20-gauge wire, and form a starting loop at one end, using round-nose pliers. Grasp the wire 1/8 inch below the loop with chain-nose pliers, and make a sharp 90 degree bend. Place loop on jig, and follow the arrows to form the earwire. Clip wire tail, and harden/flatten with nylon jaw pliers or the Wacketdown. Make two earwires and set aside.
STEP 2

Cut 6 inches of 20-gauge wire, and form a starting loop at one end, using round nose pliers. Place loop on jig, and follow the arrows to form the link. Clip wire tail, and harden/flatten with nylon jaw pliers or the Wacketdown. Make two links and set aside.
Variation: Pegs can be placed vertically rather than on the diagonal to make a slightly larger dangle.
STEP 3
Make two figure eight loops and two bead dangles. Detailed directions are found in the "Techniques" section at www.wigjig.com.
STEP 4
Use a figure eight connector to attach top loop of link to earwire loop. Attach bead dangle directly to bottom loop of link to finish.
