My birthday was almost three months ago, but I still haven’t gotten around to showing a special present I received. My friends Diede and Tomas (with the mental support from Timo) made me a necklace. Not just any necklace. They made me a necklace out of miniature lightbulbs with the most tiny origami cranes inside in rainbow colours. How awesome is that?
Picture two heavily bearded dudes in a highly feminine beads&craft shop, discussing the perfect shape and size of a necklace. They didn’t just hollow out the bulbs and fold the cranes themselves, they even fixed each bulb with cloth and wax to prevent moist and dirt from getting inside.
I am amazed by the effort they put into this project, and how spot on the design is. Jewelry and taste are difficult things to get right, but the necklace is really me.
Pretty amazing necklace, right?
[Actually there was at least double the amount of bulbs and cranes, but one bulb broke so I rearranged the necklace somewhat when I fixed it and kept the rest as ‘spare’ ones.]
