That is absolutely AWESOMIN'!  I love the lines of the bike and the wire with beads.  Nice proportions between all the sizes.  Is that a light in the center?  Is it super heavy?  What does it look like with the lights lit?  Are the beads sparkly?  Wanna do a tutorial?

Okay.  so to answer your questions, I don't know if I could do a tutorial, nothing to draw or explain really.  I used wire to hang it from a ceiling hook, and wire to hang the candle in the center.  The candle holder is just one that I found at the dollar store that was all beady - I had no intention of using it until I found myself broke and craving something new.  The beads are from yard sales and such, and yes hershey's kisses would be great, but it gets pretty hot here in the summer, and I am afraid my kids might eat them right off of the fishing line...   Wink  Anyways, I drilled holes wherever I wanted, with no pattern to hang beads from, and then continued to hang them from the spokes as well.  I also drilled holes for the wires to hold it up.  Anyways, it was fun to do, and I am very very proud of myself for thinking outside the box...   Roll Eyes  My camera doesn't take good dark pictures or I would show you what it looks like all lit up.  It reflects the spokes onto the ceiling and sparklys all around the room.  FUN!!  Anyways, thanks for the kudos!  I appreciate it.

so, i did it again, but it's too dark right now to take pictures, even with all the lights on, my camera is givin me hassles.  Only I didn't have another bike tire frame at my disposal, so I used one of those things that some people hang in their kitchens, with three baskets, for fruit or whatever, only I took the baskets off and just used the frame that hangs from a ceiling hook.  I guess I will have to add pictures so it all makes sense. but it's gorgeous too.  Smaller than the last, but gorgeous.  If you make one I want to see pictures.
