Jewelry Making Skills Required:

Step-by-step instructions for making Infinity Earrings using WigJig jewelry tools, jewelry wire, beads and common jewelry making supplies:

Step 1Cut a segment of 20G jewelry wire 1 3/4 inches long using your flush cutter. 

Step 2Make a loop in the end of this segment of jewelry wire using your round nose pliers.

Step 3:  Grasp the loop with your fingers and use it to hold the jewelry wire while you straighten the jewelry wire using your nylon jaw pliers.

Step 4:  Position two metal pegs on your WigJig Delphi jewelry tool as shown in the picture below, left.  Place the loop in the wire on one of these pegs.  If you are left handed, please select here.

Step 5:  Using your fingers push the jewelry wire around the other peg in the pattern.  It is frequently best to push the wire with the tip of the index finger from your dominant hand while you rotate the jig with your non-dominant hand.  Apply the pressure with your fingers close to the metal peg and concentrate on keeping the rest of the wire straight.  Please select here for a video on how this jewelry making skill is performed.

Step 6:  Remove the jewelry wire from the jewelry making jig and using your fingers or your nylon jaw pliers squeeze the loops in the wire to slightly flatten them.  Please select here for a video on how this jewelry making skill is performed.

Step 7:  Add your bead to the jewelry wire and slide it down so that it rests against the loops at the bottom.

Step 8:  Now grasp the vertical wire segment just above the bead with your bent chain nose pliers.  Using your thumb, push the wire against the jaws of the pliers to create a bend of about 90 degrees, as shown below, right.

Step 9:  Now, using your round nose pliers, grasp the horizontal wire segment from step 8 as close to the bend as possible, but on the horizontal side of the bend (see step 9a).  We are going to make a loop at this point.  Push the wire up and over the jaws of your round nose pliers (step 9b).  Reposition the wire so that you can complete the loop (step 9c).  Finally, push the wire tail to complete the loop.    When completed, the wire will appear as shown below, after Step 9.  In this step you are making an open loop at the top of your earring body.  Please select here for a video on how to make an open loop.

Step 11Open the loop you just completed, and slide this opened loop through the loop in your ear wire finding.  Close the loop.  When finished, the earring should appear as shown at right. 

Step 12:  Complete this jewelry making project by making a second earring using the same steps.  You can make the second earring body a mirror image of the first by starting on the opposite peg of your WigJig jewelry tool.
