Dominion Basket by AMyriadVice Dominion Basket by AMyriadVice
--because a regular jewelry box or pouch just wasn't enough for :D

Made entirely from non-tarnish silver plate wire and various shapes of freshwater pearls.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Behold, the beginning of an obsession. Go me.

Not that I really see a future full of pretty little handmade wire baskets; with Avera in hand, I really don't have time for such frivolities. And, oh, yes - time. This did take under 50 hours, admittedly. Though not by much.

Incidentally, the internal diameter at the base is about 8cm. Details would be fairly visible in the download, if you are inclined to view it.

I totally did ship that Eye Of Ra necklace to my darling, in this basket. :D

This is amazing! I do think there is a market for something like this even if you did price them at hundreds of dollars, as objects of art. My father crafts very tiny lacquered wood turned bowls and vessels, and sells them at a museum near my parents' house that a lot of tourists and retired folk visit.

I want to let you know my mother loved the 'sunshine' pendant that I purchased from your etsy shop. :)

mm, yes... Well, time is still the main concern, I guess. But I would like to make more.

Ah! Thank you so much for your feedback, I'm so glad she likes it. Incidentally, in strong light, that sunstone cab in the pendant shows its 4 rays. :)

Boo Hoo. Just saw the message that it had been mailed off. I assume that means it's sold. So how much for another?

:iconamyriadvice:
AMyriadVice Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
eh, hehe... awww. I didn't expect you to want to get one!

Anyway, for this size - about 8cm base inside diameter - and for these or similar materials; the least I can really do it for is SGD650 (about USD525). Still about minimum wage, damn - something which I aim for my company to improve for artisans in future.

Well, any specific requirements could change the cost a fair amount. For instance - different sizes per 2cm in diameter, would probably bring the price down or up quite significantly.

Oooh, ooh, should probably mention - especially since I think you'll appreciate the distinction: The lid of the box - is level from ANY direction! :D As far as spirals can be level, anyway.

Holy moley, if that first one was just practice, I'd hate to see -- or maybe be gobsmacked to see -- when you're making one for real.
