So yesterday, my friend @josediccus was kinda amazed that the lights I sell are hand made. YES! They are. I wanted to show you our Hot Air Balloon Light as it is the perfect example of true hand made craftmanship.

Those curved pieces of brass, the twisted pieces too, were bent and twisted by hand. Have you ever tried to bend a piece of steel by hand? It's kinda impossible!

Here's a vid I found online of a guy bending brass. This is literally how my coppersmith Jimmy bends the brass

Here's Jimmy heating up some brass to bend it back into shape. He's pretty amazing. He will work out how many crystals need to be on a light, and drill holes for the strings of crystal to hang from. He never gets it wrong.

From there, my other colleagues will electrify and add crystal to the light. Amazing work, right!?

Loved it

Oh what lovely dreamy things exist in your world. Truly a joy to go to work I am sure. This is magnificent.

jimmy is truly an amazing artist in his field, It was so cool seeing the video of how he shapes the brass. I think this light is my favorite so far! Another fabulous post thank you @princesmewmew, I see you asked me if I was on discord I was and then had a computer issue I was planning on installing again after I fix the issue.
