notice the wire wraps around the middle pegs in the shape of figure
eights. You may find it helpful to use a knitting needle to push the
wire down around the jig pegs as you wrap the wire. You can use any type
of wire you like. Of course, I recommend using copper wire to practice
before working with silver or gold-filled.
Start by arranging 8 pegs into the shape of a large diamond on your jig.
Now, add a small amount of wire into a hole near the outer most peg on
the right, and wrap the wire around the peg in a clockwise direction.
Continue by wrapping the wire around the 3 sets of middle pegs so you
are creating 3 figure eights. For the top pegs, work clockwise. For the
bottom pegs, work counter clockwise.
Finish the piece by wrapping the wire around the outer, left peg.
Pull off the wire from around the pegs, and trim off excess wire.
Use jewelers’ files to file the rough ends of the piece.
