By Deborah Pierro: I made this basket last year as a special gift for Krishna. My neighbors are Krishna devotees, so I gave this gift to them for Krishna. Their daughter picked out the colors of copper jewelry wire for me to use. I have a lotus shaped bowl, so I decided to use it as a mold to wrap the wire around. I also added colored beads here and there. I was inspired, so this project was fun. I want to make another one just for myself, or to give as a gift to someone else.
