  • Coiling Gizmo

    Hi I have had a coiling gizmo for Xmas and also a wire designer with pegs, has anyone else used any of these?

    I've used both, but it would take too long to explain here. Have a look at www.wigjig.com they have lots of patterns and instructions for both.

      What a great site! Thanks for the link.

      I too have hada 'pegboard' forawhile and not got round to using it yet, mainly because I have no idea what to do with it!!

        I've seen them & wondered what to do too, so will have a look at the website

          I have both and I love them to pieces.

          I find it somewhat theraputic sat making coils, I tend to get annoyed with myself when using the jig and pegs, but I have made a few items.

          There are some of my coil items, and most of my jig items on Auntynet's and Urbtaf's stall. I also made some asymetric bracelets with thicker coils, they were interesting to make (1 is in Bury, the other 4 on my site)

          I have also used the coiling gizmo to make jump rings. Oooh and I have the other one that was out, with the purple mandrels, that's interesting as it makes oval, triangle and square coils.

                  Being an ex engineer I have made my own, without which some things would be virtually impossible to make and to try to make a pair for earings or linking, forget it. That's a wonderful gift hope you enjoy it, great potential to get addicted to wire work

                    I love my pegboard, but I want a better quality one! Is a wigjig worth the extra money?
