Jewelry Making Technique of the week:

Our WigJig University wire-working technique for this newsletter is how to twist wire.  Select here to view a web page shows several techniques for twisting two pieces of wire together.  With round wire twisting doesn't show well unless you twist two pieces of wire together.  The results are shown in the piece at right.

With square wire, you can twist one piece of wire by itself.  Select here to view square wire twisted by itself and made into wire components.  Twisting a single piece of wire can be done by tightening both ends of the wire in two Pin Vises and holding one stationary while you roll the other in a consistent direction.  Stop twisting when the twist is even for the length of the wire.
