Customer Testimonials

I am even happier that I previously stated now that I've had some time to 'play' with my new WigJig items.  My wedding project is progressing nicely and it's thanks to your terrific products.  I have to admit that I originally bought the Olympus Lite but was deterred from purchasing the extra pegs because of cost... Well, I bought Beadalon's Jig-a-ma-Thing because it had larger pegs and was so much cheaper.  Yeeaah.  I learned my lesson (and got an earful from my tradesman husband about the importance of having 'quality tools') because the Thing-a-ma-Jig pegs actually WIGGLE and MOVE while you wrap wire.  It does NOT create consistent designs.  So, I might as well have just thrown those dollars out the window!  But, I learned my lesson and now can't say enough about your product:  it is fantastic!  
Lauren (May 2008)

I recently decided to learn how to make jewelry so that I could have unique and special gifts to give to friends and family.  I purchased a WigJig Delphi because I had read the rave reviews about them.  The results that I got from the WigJig are spectacular!  I took a couple of my first pieces to some friends at school just to get a second opinion on my skills and now I am taking orders! 

I also purchased another vendors jig from a local craft store.   I tried to use the other jig, but it was futile, as the designs looked horrible.  (That jig will be going back to the store!) 

Thank you for the great product and website.  Keep up the good work!!!!
Wendy (December 2006)

I recently ordered the Centaur with the Spiral Maker and I love it.  I had one of those aluminum ones with the pegs that kept falling through the bottom every time I picked it up.  I must say that your jigs are much better quality.  I tried some of your patterns after getting my new jig and they were so much easier than the old metal jigs.  Thank you so much for all your free patterns and instructions.
Patti (November 2005)

I recently bought my first WigJig jewelry making tools (I ordered the Olympus Lite and the Delphi) and I have to tell you how much I LOVE them!!  What a difference a quality jig makes.  Initially, I bought an inexpensive jig at a local craft store and was very unhappy with the results I was getting.  (Could I REALLY be that bad at wire work?)  So I ordered your products and the FIRST design I tried came out perfectly.  I just have to say thanks for inventing such a great product and keeping the prices reasonable.
