Check this out!!!
|My buddy Macs is helping me with my bells. |
He tests the quality of their sound.
|I started with this. A rusted, corroded metal chair |
seat and ??? I've had this for 2 years waiting
for that perfect piece. I LOVE the color!
|I used hanging light chain to hang the chair seat.|
|I added 79 brass bells ....|
|about 608 inches of recycled jewelry chain ...|
|and 158 jump rings.|
|Now Macs and I have to find the time and patience |
to solder every one of those jump rings. EEK!!!
WHY??? Why is it we like to make things that are toooooo time consuming??? AND expensive??? If I were to buy each of these parts on sale the cost would be insane. I priced each item out:
79 brass bells = $22.91
chain = 77.97
jump rings = $14.22
Total = $115.10 ON SALE!!!
OUCH! That's just crazy. So,,, I have about 2 hours into just hanging the bells. I still have another hour to go soldering all the jump rings. That would be a $200 piece. OUCH! Thank goodness for dumpster diving and keeping left over every thing.
This is amazing. The sound is so much fun. I'm hoping to hang this from a big blue funky spring I just found. I'm trying to figure out how to bend the ends so I can use it. Only time will tell ... well, plus Patrick the recycle worker who can make anything work!!! Thank goodness for Pat. The cost??? Tomorrow it will be peach cobbler! YUM.
This SHOULD be at Sorticulture.
