Hello!
I welded this candle holder with a MIG welder.  The spirals are raw steel that I bent with a clamp, the plates are old candle holders from a thrift store, and the base is made from a rear axel ball bearing from a truck and a flat scrap piece of steel.  After welding it I painted it, then wrapped the spirals with red wire and laced it with beads.   Overall, I think it's pretty cool and looks awesome on my coffee table.  However, it's pretty damn heavy, ha.

To fail is to try in the first place.
