Reflect the Light!

 I have been collecting antique chandelier crystals for many years….
 All shapes and sizes. I've always just kept these sparkling "frozen water droplets" scattered around my studio in a variety of found containers.
Last year I finally decided to do something fun with them, I had the thought to create a light catcher of sorts.

 Something pretty to reflect the sunlight coming in my window.
 I gathered together some heavy duty wire and tiny, thin wire too (always have lots and lots of wire around) seems like I need and use wire for everything!
 And some old brass bricolage I had stashed away, waiting for just the right project to become a part of.
 Used a trusted pair of leather gloves, wire cutters and my worn out old pliers
 to twist together this wonky yet elegant bobble. Wanted this piece to have the look and feel
of something weirdly whimsical, a bit Dr. Seussish, a little off kilter! I am in love with the results!
To quote the man himself: "We are all a little weird and Life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, We join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it Love." ~ Dr. Seuss
