A new project for me. I have never heard of or seen a wire jig before but these earrings are so stunning and different that I must make some and see other jewelry made with it. These Loopy wire beaded earrings can be worn anytime and once you get the hang of it can be made so quickly with any leftover beads. I am going to order one. A great video to learn how to make them. Anyone make jewelry using a wire jig?
