For small items you make repeatedly, you can save yourself a lot of time if you keep a wire template for each item on hand.
For example, you will make ear wires quite often. Keep a wire the length you first cut it, with only one flush cut end. Also cut a finished wire with both ends flush cut. Put them in a small labeled pill bottle or in a small plastic bag along with a note with pertinent information.
The following hook may be a component you might make often. You may find it helpful to have the hook in several stages of construction and in different wire gauges available to you for comparison when making a new hook.
You may want a wire length, Step 1, a scrolled piece, Step 3, a bent over piece, Step 5, and an finished hook to use as step templates. Another option is to make one of each step, and then photocopy those pieces together so you can use your copy as a template.
