I just got a "call" for information on wire jewelry (especially woven wire).
Does anyone have images - lesson plans - or book titles to share? I am
looking for all grade levels (especially with recycled wire - like telephone
I will post what I found for another list member - so you don't go to the
trouble of posting those links again. I will also post links for wire
baskets. Soon I will have some instructions fro Christa-Maria onlline
showing you how to make a wire basket.
You could make some small baskets using rope as a core. I could not find an
easy to follow plan online for you - but I am sure you could find
instructions at the library if you have never made coil baskets. You
probably wouldn't need to use needles (the wire itself might be stiff
enought to thread through the coil below it - you could use the figure eight
stitch or lazy squaw stitch). If you decide to go this route - their might
be a list member who wuld have a lesson with diagrams for you. Maybe use
thicker electrical wire for the spokes and the telephone wire for a
traditional over/under weave - or try twining.
