UPDATE:
So, I finally finished my cloth for this plate. I went with an old-fashioned classic crocheted lace-thingy and thought I'd show it to you. If you want to see it more porperly it has its own thread at the crochet-board: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344761.0



Old Post:
Me and my roommate wanted to try our hands on wireworks and first made a little lantern each as a try.
After this I wanted to try something bigger (insane as I am- the lantern didn't even turn out well!) and felt like designing a cookie plate since we need one (honestly, what decent home does not have a cookie plate?! ).
Soooo, I just finished it and thought I'd show you.

I really like the technique and it was fun making, even if the result turned out rather askew and unsymmetrical.





Now all that's left is to make a cloth for it. I'm not sure yet wheter to crochet one, or sew it with lace ribbons on the edge....

Great work!  I thought the asymetry was on purpose!  Would love to see it with the cloth too!

nawww, thank you guys =)

wtpdesigns- I like spiderwebs! and victorian ^^ so double jay! (I had to google battenburg cause I had never heard of it, but from what I got up it's something along the lines of what I had planned. I think I'll actually do a mixup though and crochet part of it and use a lace ribbon around the crocheted center. We'll see how that turns out)


Muria- Uhm.... eh.... now I feel all stupid and ignorant cause I really have no idea... We call it hobocrafting here, but the only english word I found on the subject was 'wireworks' and I really don't know any more than that. I had a thick wire and a thin wire, and then I just improvised >.< In the beginning I used the thick wires for the shape and used the thin wire to work around it (that's the spiderweb-looking part) but then I just sort of lost my head and started to do whatever I felt like, mostly braiding the thick wires in different ways.... I'm sorry, I really am all new to this wort of work so I'm not doing anything the way it should be done, and can't therefore explain what techniques I've used...

I really like it. I think it's more charming for not being all precise and symmetrical, I don't think that would work half as well.
