hi all,

i took the shell we foiled together yesterday, foiled some glass nuggets, and soldered them together to create this piece. then i hung it in the middle of one of my planters. this is recycled and i love it!!!

thanks for the inspiration!

i also made a little video to explain how to get the foil to stick to the glass nuggets.
check it out on youtube:
