    Thank you, I had fun doing this and of course now I want to go bigger.My imagination is working overtime. This took me about 3hrs to do.I used 24 gauge wire, I was thinking of trying a 22gauge next time.The chips have such tiny holes, so will have to go for something with a bigger hole.But thought the large wire would be stronger. Again thanks for your feedback. :D
