Tip 1I used 22 gauge wire for the inner coil and 24 gauge wire for the outer coil.
Tip 2It works best to keep the wire on the spools while coiling.

Step 1

Using a C-Clamp anchor the bracket frame to your table.

Step 2

Wrap the wire around the loop of the cranking rod a few times to anchor it. We are using the small cranking rod with 24 gauge wire.

Step 3

Place the small cranking rod through the bottom holes of the bracket frame. Hold the wire 2" down from the cranking rod.

Step 4

Start to coil the wire around by turning the handle on the cranking rod. Let the wire slide through your fingers as you turn the cranking rod.

Step 5

Coil the wire around the cranking rod to your desired length. In this case the wire is 4" long.

Step 6

Using wire cutters cut the end of your wire.

Step 7

Using wire cutters cut the end wire by the cranking rod loop so you can free the coil from the rod.

Step 8

You have now finished your first coiled length. Thread your second piece of wire through the coiled length. We are using 22 gauge wire.

Step 9

Wrap the wire around the loop of the cranking rod a few times to anchor it. We are using the small cranking rod.

Step 10

Place the small cranking rod through the bottom holes of the bracket frame. Hold the wire 2" down from the cranking rod.

Step 11

Coil the second piece of wire around the cranking rod until you have made about a 1/4" coil.

Step 12

Slide the first coiled length of wire up to the top of the cranking rod.

Step 13

Hold the bottom of the first coiled length. Start to coil the first coiled length and the second wire around the cranking rod at the same time.

Step 14

Keep coiling until you get to the end of your first coiled length of wire.

Step 15

Coil the second piece of wire around the cranking rod until you have made about a 1/4" coil at the end.

Step 16

Remove the cranking rod from the bracket frame. Using wire cutters cut the end of your wire.

Step 17

Using wire cutters cut the end wire by the cranking rod loop so you can free the coil from the rod.

Step 18

You have now finished your coiled bead. Thread your third wire through the coiled bead. We are using 22 gauge wire.

Step 19

Wrap your third piece of wire around the loop of the cranking rod a few times to anchor. We are using the small cranking rod.

Step 20

Place the small cranking rod through the bottom holes of the bracket frame. Hold the wire 2" down from the cranking rod.

Step 21

Coil the third piece of wire around the cranking rod until you have made about a 1/4" coil.

Step 22

Slide the coiled bead up to the top of the cranking rod.

Step 23

Hold the bottom of the coiled bead. Start to coil the coiled bead and wire around the cranking rod at the same time.

Step 24

Keep coiling until you get to the end of the coiled bead.

Step 25

Coil the third wire around the cranking rod until you have made about a 1/4" coil at the end.

Step 26

Remove the cranking rod from the bracket frame. Using wire cutters cut the end of your wire.

Step 27

Using wire cutters cut the end wire by the cranking rod loop so you can free the coil from the rod.

Step 28

Cut the ends of the third coiled wires so they match up evenly. In this case both ends are 6 coils long.

Step 29

You have now completed a coiled bead made with the Coiling Gizmo!
