Next, cut 2 pieces of wire, 6 inches long of 20-gauge copper wire. Using a stepped mandrel and the biggest oval shape, wrap the wire at the half way mark, bringing up each wire, so they touch. Take the right side of the wire and make a small loop (with the round nose pliers), pointing down, into the oval shape. As you finish the loop, bring your wire back up to the original position, parallel with the left wire. Wrap the right wire around the left wire 3 times, nice and tight, using your chain nose pliers. Tighten your coil and cut excess wire. Now you have just 1 wire remaining. Use your round nose pliers to make a small loop. Cut excess wire. Take the time to straighten your loops and oval shape. With the chain nose pliers, open the loop of your dangles and attach one to the oval and the other to the loop inside the oval.
Pro Tip: Just about anything can be used as a mandrel. Here is a small selection of what I might grab at any time.
