Hi Sheridan in Chicago!

  Why don't you fabricate your own basket? I learned to take my
  stone (that had a deep belly) imbed it in clay or children's
  play doh, with a  little extra depth to allow for prongs. Then
  pull the stone out gently, fill the cavity with investment and
  let it get hard. When the  investment is hard (an hour or so),
  you pull the investment out of the  clay and turn it over. You
  now have a cast of your stone to create your  basket. Cut your
  wires and solder! Piece of cake!
