the squirrel chandelier!
We could not be happier! This has been in the workings for a while, with a lot of back and forth about how all the parts come together. Mike did an amazing job with the squirrels, giving them little collars for the ringed pieces of cut paper. For the ceiling, we had a die made, so cutting and sewing the long strands was a breeze. The neon worked perfectly, illuminating the space in an eerie light, especially if you drive by the gallery late at night. We love how the neon is bright without being distracting - you can actually look into it to see the squirrels close up.
