Help with wire trees
Does anyone know anything about wire trees? How about lapidary tecniques? I need help. I made a wire tree out of laquered wire and I wish to attach small, tumbled stones to the ends of the wires...This is for a rolling ball sculpture project. I plan to have several of these trees (hopefully copper wire; I think I have some) attached to polished spheres made of natural stone that are attached to the frame of the sculpture. The track has 1" or 1/2" glass/polished stone marbles that roll along a flame-soldered wire track that winds in and out of the branches of the trees. How do I attach these tiny stones to the ends of this tree without the fear of them falling off? Some kind of loop? Glue? Both? I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions or advice..
