Round Connector Finding Form Jig
Chain Nose Pliers
Insert a 6-inch piece of 20-24-gauge wire across the findings form, with the tail on the left extending about 1/8-inch off the left side of the form.
Wrap the wire counterclockwise around the single peg at the top, while holding the tail with your non dominant hand.
Pull the wire clockwise around the circular acrylic form until it passes between the circle and the first peg on the right side.
Wrap the wire counterclockwise around the first peg.
Wrap the wire counterclockwise around the second peg.
Wrap the wire counterclockwise around the third peg.
Wrap the wire counterclockwise around the fourth peg.
Bring the wire around the acrylic circle until it passes between the circle and the top peg.
Use the pusher tool to push down on the loops on the bottom pegs to squeeze the overlapped wire together.
Remove the connector from the form and trim both ends to about 1.25 inches.
Hold the top loop with chain nose pliers and wrap the right tail twice around the large circle next to the loop.
Use flush cutters to trim the end close to the wraps.
Repeat steps 11 and 12 on the opposite side.
Congratulations, you have created a connector using a round findings form!
