Instructions

Step 1: Start from the corner of your Wig Jig Olympus Lite. Add 3 super pegs, each one graduating down from the one before it. Follow the last super peg with one regular peg.

Step 2: Use Soft Flex Professional Flush Cutters to cut 6 inches of Soft Flex Craft Wire. Place the middle of the wire around the first peg and wrap around until the wires intersect. Continue to wrap and criss the wire until you get to the last and biggest peg. Use the leftover wire to form a wire wrapped loop at the top of the wire focal piece.

Step 3: Use 5 inches of wire to form the hook half of the clasp. Use Chain Nose Pliers to bend the wire in half, squeezing the bend tightly together so that the wires are parallel. Place Round Nose Pliers about 3/4 of an inch from the bend and bend the wire around the pliers to form the hook. Use Round Nose Pliers to form a small loop using the tail ends of the wire.

Step 4: Use 2 inches of wire to form the eye half of the clasp. Form a wire wrapped loop with about a 6mm loop (or large enough to accommodate the hook) on one end of the wire. Form a regular sized wire wrapped loop on the other end of the wire.

Step 5: Use 2 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to one half of the clasp. String 1 Jade bead and form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 6: Use 2 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wire wrapped loop. String 1 Jade bead and form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 7: Repeat Step 6 eleven times.

Step 8: Repeat Steps 4-6 using the other half of the clasp.

Step 9: Use 2 inches of wire to form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the final wire wrapped loops formed in Steps 6 and 8. String 1 Jade bead and form a wire wrapped loop that attaches to the wire wrapped loop on the wire focal piece.
