This is a sort of top view of the wee models I made to show an idea in 3D form. The wire terminations are not how I would have them in forged bar, but I could forge or hammer the wire, so the just end as a cut off...
These should be able to stand on there own if they were forged, and the elastic bands are only there to keep them joined. In the forge I would weld, pin or rivet them together and then wrap over the top.

This one is a bit closer and you can just about see some detail on the left hand side. This shows how the three bars would fit together and they splay off in different directions. Again this isn't exactly how it would look if it was forged, but you get the general idea of what I would do.

Here is another photograph of the same models, but I thought I should take a close up just in case it's any clearer in showing what I want to do. Again the elestic bands really stand out, and I wish I didn't have to use them, but it was what I had to hand...
