I really like the shape of the wire frame. What did you use for a mold? And how did you maintain the shape while wrapping the wire to close it. I still get lots of mangled frames...

Thanks for your comment! I used my round nose pliers to form the tip then used a round mandrel to shape the curves. Then I hammered the wire to harden. I found hammering first helped to hold the shape while wrapping the ends (use chain nose pliers to hold the edge). I had lots of mangled frames too :)
