Step 1

Place 3 pegs in a diamond pattern in your wig jig. Leave an empty space in between each of the small pegs. Use a super peg for the bottom peg.

Step 2

Cut a piece of wire 7 inches long. Place one end of the wire into the empty peg hole between the top and right peg. Bend the wire to a right angle.

Step 3

Begin wrapping the wire around the top peg.

Step 4

Tip: Try moving the wig jig instead of moving the wire. Keep the tension on the wire tight with the opposite hand.

Step 5

After wrapping the wire completely around the top peg, bring the wire down around the left peg.

Step 6

After wrapping the wire completely around the left peg, bring the wire down around the bottom peg.

Step 7

After wrapping the wire completely around the bottom peg, bring the wire up around the right peg.

Step 8

After wrapping the wire completely around the right peg, bring the wire up around the top peg again.

Step 9

Wrap the wire around the top peg. This will create a second loop around the top peg.

Step 10

Take the wire form off of the wig jig. Use your wire cutters to cut off the end of the wire. This will leave a simple loop on one side of the form.

Step 11

Repeat step 10 on the other side of the wire form.

Step 12

Using your chain nose pliers, grasp the side of the loop.

Step 13

Close the loop by moving the open side of the loop back until the loop is closed.

Step 14

Repeat steps 12 and 13 for the other side of the wire form.

Step 15

Make several forms and link them together for a necklace, bracelet or earrings. Also, try linking them together with wire wrapped links.
