This is a jig that I purchased many years ago when I started toying around with wire jewelry. It is small, and doesn’t tend to cooperate when I want to make large pieces, but, fortunately, I haven’t gotten to the large piece phase.
I have placed the pegs where I want the wire to go, and and imagined what it would look like once I put the wire onto it. I chose 16 gauge wire instead of the 14 I originally planned to use because the smaller wire (16 gauge), looked better artistically, in my humble opinion.
So, here I have wrapped the wire around the jig. The next step is to pull it off and set it just the way I want the heart to look so that it can have crystal accents. I may wrap wire around the main wire. I haven’t decided yet. I never know what the finished piece is going to look like until I am done.
