STEP 1
Placing the Wire Across the Findings Form Place the end of wire (20-24 gauge) 6 inches (15cm) in length across findings form as shown, tail should only be a few mm off the form.
STEP 2
Wrapping Wire Around Top Peg Wrap the wire (counterclockwise) around the single peg at the top, while holding the tale with your non dominant hand, then on to the next peg (counterclockwise).
STEP 3
Wrapping Wire Over Other Pegs Continue to take a single revolution with the wire around each of the pegs (counterclockwise).
STEP 4
Wrapping Another Ring Around Top Peg Once all pegs are wrapped, wrap another ring onto the single peg.
STEP 5
Using Pusher Tool on the Design Use the included pusher tool to push the design all the way down to the surface of the finding form.
STEP 6
Cutting Design with Wire-Cutters Remove the connector from the form. Separate the two top rings and cut one of the "tail" wires off keeping a complete round shape.
STEP 7
Cut the Other Loop Cut the other loop.
STEP 8
Twisting Round Shape 90 Degrees with Chain-Nose Pliers Grasp one of the round shape wires and twist it 90 degrees so that the ring is sideways, do the same on the other side for a mirror image. Connect these two round shape wires to a jumpring, earwire, or use as a bail, then connect the items to dangle from the 5 rings.

Alternative design: At step 2 omit the second and fourth pegs for a 3 ring dangle.

Note: Some people prefer to turn the findings form instead of wrapping the wire around the pegs.
