I am really excited as I will soon be buying my wigjig tool. I now have some cash to spend on my supplies and that’s a big hep, hep, hep, horaay for me!!! I really like to learn more wirework techniques, expand my skills and I’m loving the swirls and spirals you can do with a wigjig. You can create perfect curves and so many patterns with this amazing tool.I am hoping to buy the Centaur Wigjig. A bit expensive but I think it will serve me more purpose. It is already a combination of the square and round hole patterns.
Though you can make the swirls with your jewelry making pliers, particularly the round nose pliers but special tools like the wigjig does making those curves a lot easier and perfect.Now since I do really want a wigjig and I’m preparing for it so I sourced out wirework designs involving the use of the tool. Take a look at some of the patterns you can do with a wigjig.
