This was inspired by a couple of things. I saw some single strand hanging decorations locally for $50 each and thought it would be fun to use my own found items. Our property has been in use for over a century, apparently by generations of slobs. I discovered a midden with broken glass and china, and there are ancient food cans rusting everywhere. I even found a 1928 New Mexico license plate.
So I wrapped heavy wire around the most interesting pieces plus some shells and nifty rocks, then let it all sit in a box for a few weeks, until I saw a picture of bead strands hung from a wire bread basket. I bought one a few months ago; I had something in mind, but can’t remember what, but it turned out to be the perfect support.
It needed more color, so I added beads and resin pendants I had on hand.
And hubster is hosting a meetup tour of our local National Weather Service office (yeah, I know you all want to go!), so I designed and 3D printed a mobile thank you gift for them, including their logo and weather map symbols.
