I textured the wire with hammers and then flattened it and ground some surface texture in with a diamond wheel.
Here the textures are easier to see. I textured the edge of the smaller 12 gauge and the face of the larger 10 gauge.
Next the wire pieces were sprayed with a patina generating solution and left to change. Then some 22 gauge wire in half round half hard gold filled was used to bind the upper sections together.
And here is the final result with a rollo chain in brass ox from www.bsueboutiques.com
