Looking for a wire chandelier jig - or a wire basket jig Answered

I'm interested in making an outdoor solar chandelier and I'm trying to find out how to make it?  I want to make it out of wire.  As I look through ebay and search here I can't find any info on how to make a jig or even any info on buying a jig (other than jewelry and fishing lures).  
Could someone point me in the right direction as far as making my own jig or a photo of a jig maybe you made?  What kind of wire to buy for the rustic look?  Things like that.  Thanks.

A jig is just something to make the shape you want, and we don't know what shape you want.

Try cutting a piece of plywood out in the shape you want, and bending your wire around it.

For a choice of wire, all you need is "something thick". Try wire coat-hangers.
