Instructions for Wire Wrapped Heart Design:

Step 1:
Print out the WigJig Olympus Template and draw a heart design. Place the clear WigJig Olympus on top of the template with the heart design drawn and outline the design with pegs.



Step 2: Cut 16 inches of the 20 gauge Soft Flex® Craft Wire. Use nylon jaw pliers to straighten the wire.

Step 3: Wrap 20 gauge Soft Flex® Craft Wire around the first peg. Work around the pegs to complete the design. Remove the design from the WigJig and clip both wire tails. Use round nose pliers to grasp wire end and gently curve the wire into position.



Step 4: Use nylon jaw pliers to work harden the design by flattening it.

Step 5: Cut 12 inches of the 22 gauge Soft Flex® Craft Wire. Use nylon jaw pliers to straighted the wire.

Step 6: Begin to wrap the wire at the bottom right side of the heart design. Wrap two loops. String 1 seed bead, hold it in place and wrap two loops. String 1 seed bead, hold it in place and wrap two loops. Continue with this pattern until you are satisfied with the bead placement or you run out of wire.
