wow, I didn't expect to come home to so many great responses  Embarrassed thanks so much for all your compliments Cheesy

momwith3kids: I actually used two different hook sizes, a sz 6 for the inner body and the tentacles, and a B for the outer body... and I didn't have a pattern so much as I just kind of new what basic shapes made up the piece, and freehanded it from there Smiley

a besoin de parler: actually that's a great idea... I should see if I could make the inside big enough for a tea lite, plus space for safety sake  Grin as for giving it away, it's easier knowing that I can always make another one  Wink

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

It really is lovely!  I bet it shines, too.  I found that the silver wire got nicely burnished by my needles as I worked, and they just glimmer, and I bet your jellyfish is practically luminescent when the light hits it.

For the light idea:  I'd be concerned about a tealight, that'd have to be one big jellyfish.  What about making it into an electric lamp?  You can buy teeny light kits with cords that are fairly unobtrusive, and even with this very one, you could run a little light down the top into the jellyfish, then attach a hanging chain to the loop at the top of the jar, and run the cord through that, as per most hanging lamps.  I think it would be lovely.  And if you got the right kind of lights, you could even try to make it fairly changeabe, and do different colors of light bulbs, though I think a blue light would be perfectly appropriate in that use.
