It's made of 16 gauge brass wire and 22 gauge bronze wire. I attempted to combine some the hammered arabesques with the wire-woven basket technique. I wired in a porcelain piece, which seems to glow, from Off Center Productions. I think it was a good first try and I might add dangles to the metal spirals that parallel the shape of the pendant. I am intrigued by the combination of hammered elements and the woven ones and am thinking of ways to use this to the best effect.
I thought for this one that I would streamline it a little more, like the inspiration. I hung a beautiful, simple cut, quartz pendant that has the same shape as the bauble. I should have, in hindsight, dangled it more to take full advantage. Perhaps for another one I'll do it. I might also decide to make some filled with pebbles or other items; the basket-weave is surprisingly strong and won't let anything that's appropriately sized fall through the cracks.
