Come back, Rob. You decide if you find. And this is This is what I have so far that I am with bringing my 18 wire and 18 years wire in skin to sit on the outside off my 16 gauge like this. And I am going to rock both of them together three times to corrupt returns. There I am going corrupting 16 gauge Orly three kinds. Yeah. So this is a battle, but they're going to use you have a corrupt the 16. 83 times in both These 18 is his assistant. Did return you, my king of fire. Push my rough together and offer you a deal.

It's out. So we see what I have. She looks like this. And the next step we based tore up this area and this will be the bill well dependent. I want my final bill after I'm doing wrapping the whole thing to look like this and the total length off bail will be about one edge. So I am going to wrap half off the bed and then when I'm there, I'm going toe reshape the end off the wire and continue wrapping. So we are going to use we figure eight rapping parent. For this, we are going to use with two wires to boost. To accomplish that, I'm gonna stop If you wire on the left here is right here at the bottom. My holding my painting like this and the wrapping wire is at the bottom. So I am going to bring it in between here and over this one and there. Let me put this one out of the way so we can see better. So be wire waas underneath Here In between. Over Damn, No, please. And I'm going to drop the 16 gauge twice. One to now.

So this one from an early come in between one to going back to the right in between, over. Push it with your fingers. Make sure the wraps up tight, Then long since twice they have both wires like this, I wouldn't go and get the swelling and do this wrapping. So it's gonna come here in between over Rapid wants second time. Then in between, hold it and wrap it a couple of times. That's where ones to and I have something like this. So I'm going to continue wrapping until they reach about half image and I come back and show you what we need to do next. But we mean time like me. Show you what we did in slow motion. Okay?

But I want Okay, so something like Greece. So I am going to measure it. Never half a niche right here. And I am going to slightly band the it engaged back just so that make it easy for me to wrap to pass the wire in the train. So I'm going to bend it backwards slightly in a bit. And ship might bear the way I want. And I am continuing. I am going to continue doing the figure eight wrapping pattern to finish wrapping my bear. I am going to rocket bed until I reach this area. We're both wires touch like this. Now I am finished wrapping them my bail and he looks something like this. You have two extra wires here. I left one BYU decide and uber wrapping wire on the right side. So I am going to use my flush colors and trained the excess wrapping wire, and I am going to use my my floss colors. Press rewire Iran.

Can we have something like this? Now we can ship the bell of repentant and to do so, I am going to use a pencil. So I'm going to be using just a regular pants or any type of pencil or pen will do. And I am going toe Place my pencil in the middle off a day like this and bring We were up. Six Show only room. Okay, let me stop you right there. Before doing that, I want a band. The pace off a bear a bit backwards like this and that will happens. Shape out, Bill. Better later. Let's continue. I am going toe Bush Days 18 gauge out of the way and continue bringing the bill of a pennant right here. Something like that. There I am. Going to shorten these two 16 gauge is to make it a little easier for me to wrap it there. So I'm gonna come from right here slightly shorter than dependent.

I am going to find So this is what we have So far, we have hammered the end. So now we're going toe wrap this side of the pendant and our our crystal smooth. I am going to open up my dale benefit so you guys can see what I'm doing. I am goingto take my 60 inch of 20 gauge half on wire and position my Keano's and we made off and stop bending, making sure that my wire does not get twisted. I want the rounded part off the wire to stay up. So I'm going to cross from over like this and then reposition my pliers and stuck the wires on top off each other like this. Now I'm going to bring in my pendant and position behalf run wire on the bay like this, making sure the wires are on top of each other if you flat side down in the rounded side on top. 7. Finishing the Bail: now we are going toe are the half from wire to be bale of dependent, and I'm going to use my 20 gauge wire potash. We have run wire to repentant, using the figure it wrapping batter. I am going to start by wrapping one of a 16 gauge a couple of times. Then bring the wrapping wire over behalf from then under bestest engage, then wrap. This is engaged a couple of times, that's where. So let me show you a demo off our to do we figure eight wrapping pattern using three wires . So just follow along to wrap the bailiff dependent. So I am going to do with the most rations of figure eight wrapping pattern using three wires. So I am going to stop by wrapping the wire on the left a couple of times. That's one to I love the wire wrapping. Why is coming back in the middle under me? The one although the right one one turn 2nd 1 Then this time is going over with me. The one and, uh, we left form and I'm going to wrap a couple of times. That's one to we're under the middle one again over the right one, then one to and we have one full rotation. You can see that the wrapping wire is going over the middle one once. That's how you can tear that. You have a forward station. So this is one full rotation. Let's go for the second rotation. Be wise under the right one. So I'm gonna come. And in between, over the major one under the left, We're up once. Twice. Come back again under the media, over B. Right then I'll interrupt once, twice, and we have two rotations. Let's go for the 3rd 1 Official Y come over Me either. And, uh, he left. We're up once twice. Income under over one twice. And we have three rotations. I'm going to add some tape to secure we have from wire and to keep it from moving around too much. Then I'm going to move these two out of the way and continue wrapping the 26 Engage using figure it rapping pattern and created sit toe old be crystal 8. Setting the Stone: and here I'm just checking to make sure that I have enough states for the crystal to sit in and my crystal fits. So I'm going to bring back my half from wires and spread very part like this. This one is at the top and this one is at the bottom. So I'm going to criss cross the wires and bring the one at the top of your beside first. Then we want underneath. We now go on top of the over one like this. Then I we continue wrapping the three of them together again and do two rotations. And this is what toe have now and you can see the two raps on top off 1/2 round. Now I'm going to press the half run down just to lift up this part a little bit. Then I'm going to use the tiny screwdriver and put it under. We have from and lift it slightly so I can slide in my crystal. Then I'm going to use my fingers to gently spread the wires apart. So my crystal eads visible once we crystal is installed, I'm going toe gently Talk at my half from tight anything around the crystal so he doesn't fall out. Then I'm going to continue wrapping and do a couple off rotations and this is what I have and I'm going to stop right here. So I'm going to train all the excess wires. I use my channels, players precedent against the six. Engage. - Next . I'm going to bend. Um, I have front to the back over there and trim them to about one inch. We'll come back to this is to these two Later. Now I'm going to bring the bill back to its original position and use my room. Lose players to close the gap in the bear. 9.

And I'm going to grab the one, but is now on the left and bring it to the back of dependent. I have about half a niche of the 18 gauge left onto back, and I'm going to use my run those players to create a decorated Spira. Now let's go back to the front of dependent. I'm going to train the remaining. Why it? We about 3/4 of a niche, found the end and then create another dick already spiral and we are all done. Dependent is complete. Now I'm going to go ahead and remove it It now, from the back of dependent I'm going toe.
