Well ... that's kinda what it reminded me of!
I can see that without visuals that this will require some explanation.
I rediscovered some things during my clean-up that I totally forgot about ... like a bunch of wooden beads left over from way old macrame projects.
I was almost gonna pitch them out when a wee voice said "Nooo .... you can make something with these!" There's that damned pack rat talking again!
So any way ... I decided to play with them to see just what they could become.....and damned if they didn't turn into a trivet!
Okay ..... pop quiz .....who knows what a trivet is???
Yup ... it's a thing you put under hot plates/bowls so that the heat doesn't damage the surface beneath. While a good old pot holder or oven mitt would suffice...trivets are special ... decorative.
It took some big wire ... 20 gauge ... and a pair of pliers to manage it , but the finished piece turned out way cool ...and will share when I get it scanned in.....likely tomorrow!
