Ok so I used to work in a factory making coffee machines. They threw a lot of metal to the recyccling place and I decided as some of these metal offcuts were nice shapes I'd take some home.
I had an old light fitting and so together with the piecs of metal and lots of jump rings which I also scavenged from my old employer I have a garden mobile.

After more than two years I have finally made something from some of the pieces.

Love it.  I think it would also make a great light fixture!

 Grin It was a light fixture before i got it with really naff plastic/crystals which were broken tarnished and incomplete.

I think maybe now its a bit sparse looking but it gives a very pleasant tinkling sound in the wind. I may be adding some flashes of colour with some beads but not quite sure yet.
