Use a thicker gauge wire such as 18 or 20 gauge for a stronger finished wire form.
Place 8 pegs in a diamond pattern in your wig jig. Leave an empty space in between each of the pegs.
Cut a piece of wire 10 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.
Begin wrapping the wire around the top peg.
After wrapping the wire completely around the top peg, bring the wire down around the top of the right peg in the next row.
After wrapping the wire completely around the right peg, bring the wire around the top of the left peg in the same row.
After wrapping the wire completely around the left peg, bring the wire down around the top of the right peg in the next row.
Wrap the wire around the top of the bottom peg. Bring the wire up around the bottom of the peg to create a loop.
Take the wire form off of the wig jig. Use your wire cutters to cut off the end of the wire.
Use your wire cutters to cut off the other end of the wire.
Make several forms and link them together for a necklace, bracelet or earrings. Also, try linking them together with wire wrapped links.
