Instructions

Step 1:When using a WigJig, you will make your first loop with your round nose pliers. Place the loop on the small metal peg at the top of the triangle. Guide the wire around the other two pegs to form a triangle. Make two triangles.



Step 2: Work harden the two triangles after you pop them off of the WigJig. Work hardening your wire actually changes the molecular structure inside the wire. It is the process of manipulating the wire to lock in the design and stiffen the wire so that your design will stay in place. Also, I straightened the wire with the nylon jaw pliers each time I made a turn on the WigJig. This offered straighter lines and extra work hardening.



Step 3: Fit the two triangles together in opposite directions to create your star shape. Use the 24g craft wire to bind each connection in place.



Step 4: Also wrap wire around the top and bottom loops to finish connecting the two pieces into one.



Step 5: Next, use the 18g craft wire to create an ornament hanger. In this case, I used a wire wrap loop to connect to the star, strung a bead and then made my hanger on the WigJig using a 7/16 in. super peg. This hanger should be work hardened too. Find directions for creating an ornament hanger here.



Step 6: Finally, add a bead to the bottom using a wire wrap loop to connect to the star. Bend the wire back up to the top and double wrap above the bead. Cut off the excess wire. This would look cute on a Hanukkah package as part of the wrapping.
