Wire Jigs

You can make wire-wrapped jewelry with pliers and a wire cutter. But if you want to make consistently sized, uniform pieces over and over again, consider a jig. A wire jig, like the one in Figure 7-2 in Chapter 7, is the only way to go. In its simplest form, a jig is a board (typically made of plastic) with holes, and you insert pegs into those holes. Then you wrap wire around the pegs. You can change the configuration of pegs to create all sorts of wire-wrapped shapes.

Check out Chapter 7 for details on how to make wire jewelry with a wire jig.
