Yes, you read correctly. Even ordinary ballpoint pens make for chandelier material. And thankfully so, as, unfortunately, many pens end up on landfills, where the polyethylene and polystyrene materials they are composed of decompose extremely slowly. Madrid-based design studio enPienza! created its six-tier “Volivik” chandelier out of 895 Bic pens and paperclips. The light and patterns it creates is just incredible.
These mosaic ornaments with precious clay hearts are awesome. Also the tamari ornaments mentioned in same article. http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2011/12/how-to_mosaic_ball_ornaments.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+craftzine+%28CRAFT%29
