Lapis and agate beaded wire bowl using coiling basketry techniques. Measures about 2.5" across. Yes it's tiny!

Copper Wire Coiled Bead Bowl by ~WiredElements is an unusual work of art, and the beads add a touch of color and distinction to this amazing wire-basketry piece. ( Suggested by xlntwtch and Featured by Talty )

It's incredible how small it is...but as a functional bowl many times larger, it would look just brilliant in any home.

Very fine work here, my friend.

This is absolutely amazing! Your craftsmanship is impeccable! The fact that you used wire is really impressive too!
I made a whole dress doing the coil basket technique if you want to see my gallery!
Also, congrats on a well-deserved DD!

Oh. I was wondering how big it was- if it was full size, say 6 inches, you'd have had to annul that wire so many times it would've just melted without doing anything! I love the piece though. Beautiful work. Whatever will you put in it?

WiredElements Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
This type of wirework does not work harden the wire very much and doesn't need annealing. So it is possible to make it as large as you like! The main reason it is small is due to the amount of time it takes:)) Thank you !!!

You're very welcome, and thanks for the info!- What gauge wire did you use?

:iconwiredelements:
WiredElements Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012
It's been two years, but I'm guessing that I used 18-16g for the core wire and 24g for the wrap wire

Gorgeous! :heart: I would love to make something like this.

Any tutorials? Where did you learn?
Reply
:iconwiredelements:
WiredElements Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
I offer a free tutorial here [link]

And a 4$ on here [link]

Mostly I have learned through books or tutorials and trial and error.

The Bead Bowl is not hard to make and the free tutorial can get you started making your own bowl. You can use a toy ball to help you shape your work as you weave if you need to
