Gorgeous! Looks like something you'd have to pay a lot of money for if you wanted to buy one in stores. Great job!

Very beautiful!!!!!
What are you using to light it? And how are you securing it? I tried using a balled up string of LED christmas lights (to minimize fire hazard), with some paper glued around the cord inside the star as a 'stopper' to keep the light in about the center as long as it's hanging, with the battery pack left on the cord on the outside of the star for if it goes out (I've heard LEDs last much longer than their batteries) but that leaves me trying to figure out a good-looking harness to hang the battery box from, since the cord isn't really long enough to hang from the ceiling. Also the LED string I found only had 10 lights and I feel it's not bright enough, but the strings I saw with more lights seemed to be plug-in, rather than battery powered, and seemed to have the lightbulbs start too close to the plug to use the cord itself for hanging the star from.
Your star has such a nice even glow, and a slender elegant cord coming out - PLEASE tell what you used, how you did it!!
