Textile Collage "GRIDS" with wire framing - how to?

I haven't posted anything in quite awhile, so I just thought I would share a couple of awesome photographs.

I just LOVE the ribbon-embroidered French knots all over this tree - I have really been inspired by stitching and the texture it creates.

and the wall art textile collages on the right - I love how the little bits and pieces are framed in a grid-like pattern. I really want to try this! I wonder what type of wire this artist used to create the "grid" - and how she got the squares and circles shaped so perfectly! If you have any ideas on how to do this, please let me know. All of a sudden all sorts of UFO's (Unfinished Objects), beads, large vintage mother of pearl buttons, vintage trims, lace pieces, and vintage doilies are calling my name! 

So - if ANYBODY out there has any advice at all on what kind of wire to use for this, I would be so grateful! : )  Email me, or leave a comment below!
