Step 1: Cut and straighten a piece of 16G, 18G or 20G jewelry wire about 10 inches long.
Step 2: Make a loop in one end of the jewelry wire.
Step 3: Place the loop over peg one as shown at left and wrap the jewelry wire around pegs 2 and 3 in turn, returning to peg 1.
Step 4: Make a final loop around peg 1 with the end of the jewelry wire.
Step 5: Before removing the jewelry wire from the WigJig jewelry tool, gently squeeze the wire together on either side of the peg using your fingers. This is done to make the points of the star sharper and less rounded. This step may not be necessary with 1/2 hard jewelry wire.
Step 6: Remove the jewelry wire component from the jewelry making jig and repeat, making a second, identical triangle.
Step 7: After removing each piece from the WigJig jewelry tool, cut the excess wire tails off. Close the ending loop where you just cut the excess jewelry wire with your chain nose pliers.
Step 8: Cut and straighten 12 inches of 24 or 26 gauge jewelry wire.
Step 9: For each triangle that you just made, insert 1/2 inch of this fine jewelry wire through the two loops around peg 1. Wrap this jewelry wire around the top of the two loops, threading it back through the loops to fully encircle the two loops. Pull tight. This should begin to hold the two loops together. Do this again at least three times. Cut the excess jewelry wire at both ends (beginning and ending). Use your chain nose pliers to squeeze the wire ends flat.
