This is lovely. I admire your patience, I have a feeling that had I attempted such a project mine would have ended up much smaller.  I find the combination of the aluminum and the beading very intriguing. Also I agree with everyone's comments on the shaping of the stars, it's great.

Sweet wall art. All the shapes you could make with the cans, too. That would be nuts

If you made this where the vertical rows weren't connected to each other sideways, it would be an awesome room divider/curtain for a room you didn't want people to go into.  It would work 2 ways:
1. They would stop and be mesmerized by the pretty stars and forget they wanted to enter your forbidden room,  and
2.  If they did try to go past it, all the pointy stars would poke them, and they would have to turn back! HAHAHAHAHA!


This is really cool!

For those of you asking you just have to score lines (Every other on one side, then alternate on the other side) then just lightly bend it into place.  I've done this with paper.

Not only is it an intriguing concept, it is executed beautifully, with the colors grouped for maximum effect and beautifully pleasant eye flow. A lovely, lovely job!

Yup.  I hit "This Rocks" too.  Because it totally does.

I would also love a tutorial, but only if you have time.  ;-)

You know what my favorite part of this is, now that I've looked at it again?  I love how the different coloured-stars are arranged to form GIANT six-spoked stars, and then you used the silver backs of the stars to fill in the white space.  Every aspect of this is so well-planned. Excellent, excellent work!
